Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns technical team is sweating over the hamstring injury to Bafana Bafana midfielder Keagan Dolly.

According to the club’s official website, Dolly picked up the knock during the Olympics in Brazil, in the last group stage match against Iraq.

The Chloorkop side attributes the hamstring injury to overloading matches in quick succession, especially for a player who has played more matches than any Sundowns player.

The Amaglug-glug captain played a crucial role in Sundowns’ CAF Champions League victory over Zamalek on a Wednesday and quickly flew to Brazil, where he played a full 90 minutes in a friendly match against a Brazilian police team with hardly five hours of rest.

The Sundowns team doctors believe that Dolly, who did not travel with his team-mates to Rusternburg for the pre-season camp might be out of both the Champions League match against Enyimba and the MTN8 match against Supersport United.

Before South Africa’s opening match against Brazil, it was well reported that Dolly’s fellow under-23 team-mates; Tashreeq Morris, Mothibi Mvala, Thabiso Kutumela and Phumlani Ntshangase were suffering the same injury.
