JOHANNESBURG – The Olympic dream lives on following this victory for the national Under-23 side at Bidvest Stadium last night.
In a year that has seen the majority of South Africa’s national teams qualify for major tournaments, the national U23 side did their best to edge closer to adding their name to that list.
David Notoane and his team are now a two-legged fixture away from booking their place at the Caf eight-nation Championships, which will serve as a qualifying tournament for Tokyo 2020.
Though the hard work was already done in the first leg away in Angola, which they won 3-1, the South Africans did not sit back and try to defend their big lead.
Instead, they played like every host should and dictated terms, making Angola feel a long way from home.
