Phakaaathi Reporter

Kaizer Chiefs and national under-23 player Lorenzo Gordinho dreams of being selected among a crop of players that will do duty at the Rio Olympic Games in August.

Gordinho was part of Owen da Gama’s troops that played against Brazil and lost 3-1 last week Sunday in Maceió, but the young Amakhosi defender says it was a good experience.

“It was a good experience,” reflects Gordinho.

“It was a long travel, but it is always great to experience another culture. The Brazilians really love their soccer. The stadium was packed to capacity.”

“It would be great to be selected for the Olympics, that is a dream for any young sportsman.”
