The national Under-20 team have reported for camp to begin preparations for the Africa U-20 Africa Cup of Nations.

Amajita coach Thabo Senong has named a provisional squad ahead of the tournament which will kick off in Niger in February, as he looks to find a strong team that will both conquer Africa and qualify for the FIFA World Cup that will be played in Poland later this year.
