South Africa’s U23s To Face Police In Brazil

South Africa’s U23s will face off against the Brazilian Police Department in a friendly game in Brasilia later this afternoon.

 
Owen da Gama’s side are currently in the Brazilian capital as they prepare for the opening game of the Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games next week, however, haven’t managed to organise a game against a proper side.
 
Now, as they get themselves ready to face the hosts on 4 August, they will be taking on the local police force at Minas Tenis Clube on Friday at 15h00, with Da Gama looking to try out some combinations as he decides on his starting XI for Thursday.
 
Speaking to SAFA’s official website, "We would have loved to play another country, and we did try to arrange with other countries, however, they were not available. We also made enquiries with local clubs but nothing came of it.
 
"We will play the police team in order to accomplish our objectives, which are, to firstly assist the players in getting the feel of the high tempo, and, secondly, to acclimatise to the conditions of a real match situation."
