They host a fearful South Africa squad severely depleted by COVID-19, faced a major setback after two players Thabiso Monyane and Kamohelo Mahlatsi tested positive for corona virus on arrival in Tokyo.

 

“Our key player (Mahlatsi) tested positive, we were building our game-plan around him. Our job has become more difficult. But at the end of the day we have to put up a team on Thursday to face up to the might of Japan” revealed the South Africa U23 Head Coach David Notoane on Monday.

Notoane said it was inevitable that South Africa’s COVID-19 challenges will catch up with them in what is already a difficult pool that also contains France and Mexico. He also regretted the fact that his side, who returned to training on Monday after a week without being on the pitch, will limp into a contest that will have the eyes of the watching world fixed on it.
