It’s nearly two years since South Africa finished bottom of the U20 World Cup 2017 in Korea Republic.

Obviously South Africa tasted early elimination but the U23 that won the AFCON bronze against Ghana had nine of the players promoted from the U20 World Cup team.

The players include
Mondli Mpoto, Tercious Malepe, Thendo Mukumela, Sipho Mbule
Teboho Mokoena, Grant Margeman, Keletso Makgalwa, Kobamelo Kodisang, Luther Singh

The nine South African players were strongly part of team that defeated Ghana on penalty shootouts to qualify for Tokyo 2020 summer Olympics in Japan.
