Bafana Bafana star Percy Tau could be going to the Tokyo Olympics.
This is after the Brighton midfielder was included in David Notoane’s 40-man provisional U-23 squad as one of seven over-aged players picked for the 2020 Games, kicking off in Japan in July.
Notoane will cut down his squad to a final 23-man before he could submit the list to the local Olympic committee.
Tau, 27, is not the only overaged played in the squad with Mamelodi Sundowns players; Mothibi Mvala, Thapelo Morena, Themba Zwane, Ricardo Goss and Mosa Lebusa also included as well as SuperSport United goalkeeper Ronwen Williams.
There are, however, numerous Bafana Bafana internationals in the team, the likes of Reeve Frosler, Sipho Mbule, Teboho Mokoena, Lyle Foster and Luther Singh, also in the team.
