Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns legend Roger Feutmba believes midfielder Keagan Dolly will go on to become one of the biggest stars in South African football.

Dolly has had an outstanding year after playing a major role in Sundowns' Premiership and Telkom Knockout triumphs.

The 23-year-old has also been instrumental in helping Sundowns reach the CAF Champions League semi-final.

Dolly is currently skipper of the South African team competing at the Rio Olympic Games in Brazil.

Feutmba praised Dolly and the team for holding hosts to a goalless draw Brazil in the opening match on Thursday.

"He (Dolly) is a very good player and he stands out. I always believed that if he continues to play the way he’s playing, he will go very far," Feutmba told Soccer Laduma.

"I even believe he should have more opportunities to move to an overseas team. He's a good player and he showed that yesterday. He managed to deal well with the pressure.

"I believe the entire team managed to do well and to have a draw against the host nation is no easy task. So it was a good game for these young boys and if they keep going and stick together, they can go far in this tournament."
