Notoane names new U-23 squad for Egypt


South Africa U-23 head coach David Notoane has named an updated squad to face Egypt U-23 twice this month in preparation for the 2020 Olympic games.

Golden Arrows’ PSL Goalkeeper of the Season candidate Sifiso Mulungwana, Kaizer Chiefs right-back Reeve Frosler and Goodman Mosele are among the names brought into the squad after previously missing out.
