Posted: 15 March 2015 Time: 20:53
The South Africa U-20 side ended their CAF Youth Championship campaign with a 5-2 victory over Zambia in Dakar, Senegal on Sunday night.
Tyrone Sandows bagged a hat-trick to go with a brace from Dumisani Zuma, while Junior Chipolpolo scored via Charles Zulu and an own goal from Kabelo Seriba at the Stade Léopold Sédar Senghor.
Thabo Senong's charges were earlier knocked out of the competition - which serves as a qualifier for the Fifa U-20 World Cup - following losses to Ghana (2-0) and Mali (2-1).
Amajita, who finished third in Group B, are scheduled to touch down at OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg on Monday at 16h45.
Zuma put Amajita ahead with a delicate finish in the 22nd minute after some fine interplay.
Seriba then headed past his own keeper eight minutes later with little pressure from the Zambian attack.
Sandows made it 2-1 with a subtle effort following a cross by Aubrey Modiba in the 60th minute.
Zuma completed his double a few minutes later with a sublime strike to make it 3-1.
Sandows scored his second goal when South Africa easily carved the Zambia defence open to make it 4-1, and he completed his treble with a few minutes to go with another good finish.
Zambia reduced the deficit through Zulu in stoppage time.
