Cape Town - Amaglug-glug beat Egypt under-23s 2-1 in a friendly on Friday and young star Keagan Dolly spoke to Sport24 about the game and the squad's progress as they prepare to take on Zimbabwe next month.
Dolly scored a free-kick in the second half to equalise as the South African under-23 side fought their way back into the game.
“First half we struggled to keep the ball,” he told Sport24.
“They were compact and hit us on the counter which was a bit of a problem for us.
“Second half was much, much better after the coach brought Travis Graham on. Structurally we were better and we started to get into the game slowly.”
Dolly spoke about being given a free role by coach Owen Da Gama, and is confident of making a go for Olympic qualification as the squad begins to take shape.
“I’m playing down the left wing but I can drift more into the middle – sort of like a free role.
“I think we have a good bunch of players and with a few more camps we will be good to go.”
Amaglug-glug take on Zimbabwe on July 17 in the qualifier for the under-23 African championships – the top three placed teams at the tournament will qualify for the Olympics.
