Amajita ready for COSAFA semi-final

Posted: 11 December 2018 Time: 11:30

National Under-20 midfielder Njabulo Blom is confident they can see off Angola in their COSAFA Championships semi-final clash at Nkana Stadium in Zambia on Tuesday. 

Defending champions Amajita have been ruthless in the competition, scoring nine goals in Group B to book themselves a spot in the last-four. They beat Mauritius 5-0 in their opening match and then hammered Swaziland 4-0 over the weekend. 

“All credit must go to the coaching staff for leading us to where we are now in this tournament. We won two of our Group B matches without conceding a single goal,” Blom told SAFA's website.

“The coach always tells us to never undermine our opponents, and always work hard towards pushing for desired results in every match. This is one team that is always willing to learn and we intend on building on our previous two performances in this Angola clash.”

Coach Thabo Senong says they have prepared well for the match against Angola. 

“We had a good training session building up to our semi-final clash against Angola,” Senong said.

“We worked on a few tactical areas which I believe will be key in helping us to do well on Tuesday. Tournament football is more results driven. You have to be very direct in your play, score goals and be very solid in the defensive third. We have worked on all of those areas in this session and our ambition now is see this team in the final.”
