SA U23 coach David Notoane has announced the squad to play Saudi Arabia in two friendlies in preparation for next year’s Olympics.
Notoane’s charges, who qualified for the Tokyo Olympic Games after finishing third in last year’s U-23 AFCON tournament in Egypt, will assemble for camp on 7 November at Milpark, Gauteng before flying out to the Middle East on 10 November.
The two friendly matches will be played on 14 November and 16 November in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, before the team flies back to South Africa the following day.
“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,” Notoane said.
