The South Africa Men’s Olympic Team will be without the services of central defender Eric Mathoho and striker Lebo Mothiba when they face Iraq in the crucial last group A match of the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.

The clash takes place on Wednesday, 10 August 2016.

Mathoho was ruled out due to an ankle injury. He went down in the last 10 minutes of their 1-0 loss to Denmark following a strong tackle on him.

Mothiba was withdrawn because of a potential case of chicken pox.

The good news is that Abbubaker Mobara, who also left the pitch in the last match suffering from a hamstring strain, is available for selection.

South Africa will face Iraq in a do or die affair at Corinthians Arena in Sao Paulo.

Kickoff is at 22h00 local time (03h00 SA time).
