South Africa Close In On Olympic Spot…

South Africa’s U23s need just a point against Nigeria tonight to book their spot in the semi-finals of the U23 African Cup of Nations, and are closing in on a place at the 2020 Olympics.

Check out some images from Egypt in the gallery above!

With an opening night 0-0 draw with Zambia and then a 1-0 win over Ivory Coast, David Notoane’s side have put themselves in a good position to progress into the final four of the competition, with the top three all booking their spot in Tokyo.

The South Africans need just a point against Nigeria this evening in order to make sure they reach the last four where they will play either Egypt or Ghana, but Teboho Mokoena – the hero against Cote d’Ivoire – says they want all three points in Cairo this evening.

Mokoena told SAFA.net, “We played really well against Ivory Coast in our previous match and Nigeria is another side that we will need to manage as well… We have been solid at the back in our previous two group games while pressing forward to create scoring chances of our own. The same approach will be applied in this tie, as we also want to win this game as well.”
