Dolly said the support that he gets from his family is the wind beneath his wings.

“The support structure I have in my life… My family, my girlfriend… I am quite stable in that department.

“Also my teammates and technical team were wonderful from the first day they made me feel good, it felt like I had been part of the team for a long time,” said Dolly.

Dolly said he enjoys scoring goals, but is happier if the team wins.

“I don’t plan to go into a match and score. As long as the team is doing well I am happy. If I can contribute to the success of the team I am happy even if I don’t score.

“Luckily I have been scoring in the past few games and hopefully I can continue doing so going into the Olympics because that is a big stage for me and it can help me reach my dream of playing in Europe,” said the national Under-23 team captain.
