The matches against Saudi Arabia will serve as preparation for the Olympic Games, which was rescheduled to next year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Notoane admits he pleased to resume preparations for the Olympics, having not kicked a ball this year.

“I am very happy that we can finally get our preparations for next year’s Olympic Games underway, after the team had been inactive for quite some time due to the Coronavirus pandemic,” Notoanet told SAFA.net.

“We have roped in some new young talent and we would like to see how they will perform in the Under-23 level from junior national team ranks. Players like Njabulo Blom, Nkosingiphile Ngcobo and Sibusiso Mabiliso are players who have done extremely well in the National Under-20 set-up and are also part of first team football action in their respective clubs.”

“We truly believe that these two friendly matches will give us the information that we need, as we continue with the process of identifying the right talent to work with building up to next year’s Olympics.”

Full SA U23 squad:

Goalkeepers: Darren Johnson, Sifiso Mlungwana

Defenders: Tercious Malepe, Katlego Mohamme, Thabiso Monyane, Njabulo Blom, Sifiso Ngobeni, Sibusiso Mabiliso, Given Msimango, Siyabonga Ngezana
