Wednesday, 22nd Jan 2020 06:33
Blues striker Ben Folami’s Australian U23s will be looking to reach the final of the AFC U23 Championship when they take on South Korea in this afternoon's semi-final in Rangsit, Thailand, and also a place at this summer’s Olympics.
Folami, 20, who has been capped three times at U23 level, has made one appearance in the competition so far, as an extra-time sub in the 1-0 quarter-final defeat of Syria on Saturday.
The competition doubles as qualification for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo with the top three teams at the tournament claiming a place at the Games.
Saudi Arabia meet Uzbekistan in the other semi-final this morning with the final on Saturday.
The last Town player to feature at the Olympics was Tommy Smith who was in the New Zealand squad at London 2012.
