BREAKING: SA qualify for Olympic games


It’s celebration time for SA following the U23 team’s 6-5 penalty shootout win over Ghana.

The match finished 2-2 in regulation time, with Luther Singh and Kamohelo Mahlatsi on the scoresheet for SA, though Singh’s goal may be put down as an own goal (see in the video below).

SA twice led in the match played at Cairo International Stadium in Egypt, but Ghana equalised to force the match into penalties, with goalkeeper Mondli Mpoto of SA emerging as the hero with a couple of saves in the spot kicks.

Singh was named Man of the Match.
