Orlando Pirates fan favourite Lekoelea was not a regular during qualifying, but after setting up Daniel Matsau’s late winner in the final play-off match against New Zealand, he found himself more frequently utilised at the Olympics, coming on as a sub to score the third goal in the win over Brazil, and coming on again in the final match. ‘Chippa’ went on to play ten times for Bafana Bafana.
