The national U23 team has added their name to the qualified nations for the Total U23 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) in Egypt

South Africa will participate in the U23 Afcon along with host nation Egypt, Cameroon, Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Mali, Nigeria and Zambia in November.

The top three teams will then progress to represent the continent at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.

The South African U23 team is excited to make their dreams come true, after beating Zimbabwe in their Afcon qualifier 5-0 on aggregate.

We can watch videos of U23 captain Tercious Malepe, star player Sipho Mbule and head coach David Notoane address their supporters.

This comes after their 0-0 second-leg draw away in Zimbabwe on Tuesday, and the team recognised the importance of their convincing first-leg victory in front of their home fans.

You can watch the videos, see photographs of the team and even listen to a longer interview with Notoane, all thanks to Safa media's Twitter posts below.
