Kaizer Chiefs duo Reeve Frosler and Nkosingiphile Ngcobo have joined the South African U23 Olympic team ahead of their opening Group A clash against Japan on Thursday.
The Chiefs pair were part of the Amakhosi team which participated in the Caf Champions League final against Egyptian giants Al Ahly this past Saturday in Casablanca, Morocco.
Frosler will bring a wealth of experience to the Olympic team as a seasoned right back who can transition into a right flank, while Ngcobo will bring in the much needed competitive edge into the midfield.
“We have had a very long trip and are still a bit disappointed at the weekend’s results, however as professionals we are now settled in Tokyo and will be 100 percent ready to play if we are selected in the opening match,” Frosler told Safa.
South Africa are set to face host nation Japan in their opening Group A encounter which kicks off at 1pm.
