Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns winger Keagan Dolly aims to make the most of showing off his talent in front of a global audience at the Rio Olympic Games.

After a successful campaign with Sundowns, Dolly has turned his attentions to his duties with the national under-23 team.

Dolly will look to make an impression in hopes of securing a move to one of the top European leagues.

"The Olympics will open lots of doors for us to go oversees because we know it is one of the biggest tournaments and everyone is going to be watching us," Dolly told Goal website.

"For me personally I would like to go to Europe, preferably to Spain or England, but for now any team in Europe that wants me I'd take the opportunity to go."

The 23-year-old also highlighted his progress in the last 12 months since leaving Ajax Cape Town for Sundowns.

"I couldn't have asked for a better first season at a big club like Sundowns. I won the league, the Telkom Knockout Cup, I am going to the Olympics, received Bafana Bafana call-ups and I've gained experience playing in Africa."

South Africa will take on hosts Brazil in their opening match at the Olympics at the Mané Garrincha Stadium on 4 August.
