The U23 Olympic team has been boosted with the arrival of Kaizer Chiefs duo Reeve Frosler and Nkosingiphile Ngcobo ahead of their opening match of the 2020 Olympics games against hosts Japan on 22 July 2021.
Frosler and Ngcobo were part of the Kaizer Chiefs team which lost to Egyptian giants Al Ahly in the CAF Champions League final this past Saturday in Casablanca, Morocco.
Frosler who played the full 90 minutes in the CAF Champions League final, brings much needed experience into the U23 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.
The duo experienced their excitement ahead of the Olympic games and admitted that they are a little behind with acclimatizing to the time difference.
“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% ready to play if we are selected in the opening match,” said Frosler.
