The time is nearing. Our U23s are about to go do battle in Brazil for the Olympics. This is huge news for South Africa. It has been 16 years since we last competed in this tournament, when we beat Brazil 3-2. Part of the deal is that the team is afforded three overaged players to include in the squad, so who do the supporters want to see representing the nation?
Recent rumours suggest that the most likely overaged inclusions in the Olympic squad will be Erick Mathoho, Andile Jali and Itumeleng Khune. It seems most supporters agree with the idea of including Khune and Jali, while Mathoho is still debatable.

"Simply the best. There is no keeper who can give the ball directly to a striker or midfielder. He can pick you out even when you are marked." – Teaboy
"Good choice by ODG." – Moshimane
"I would sacrifice Tower and add Gordinho at least if an extra defender is needed." – Keida_Keita.
Which three overaged players would you include in your Rio 2016 squad?
