South Africa – down to ten men – hold hosts Brazil (& Neymar) to a nil nil draw at the Olympics. Great achievement by #RSA.

The senior national football team can learn a thing or two from these Under 23’s at the Olympics. 10 keeping Brazil to goalless draw.

@IIKHUNE_32_16 performance in this game must be awkward for those fellow South Africans who couldn’t stop talking before for Rio 2016
