Chiefs' duo lifts Amajimbos

Amajimbos' Solly Luvhengo confident on African Youth Championship qualification

Posted: 12 April 2010 Time: 3:44 pm

National Under-17, Amajimbos, coach Solly Luvhengo is confident that his team will qualify for the African Youth Championship in Rwanda next year.

This is after the Amajimbos beat Namibia 3-0 in their qualifying game at the Sam Nujoma Stadium over the weekend.

South Africa scored the three goals through a brace by Kaizer Chiefs' Maselaelo Seango and a strike by his Amakhosi teammate Thabani Mthembu.

This gives the South Africans a healthy lead going into the second leg of the qualifier to be played in Kimberley in a fortnight's time.

Speaking to KickOff.com on the team's return from Windhoek, Luvhengo said the team did not reach expectations in the first half, but then excelled in the last 45 minutes.

"The first half was little bit scrappy but soon after we scored our first goal we started to dominate the game.

"The boys gave a much improved performance in the second half and we were unlucky not to score at least five goals.

"I have given the squad a one-week break and we will resume training again this weekend. We still have long road to Rwanda as we still have to finish the job on Namibia and then play Barkina Faso. But we have the right attitude among the players and I am certain that we will qualify for the finals next year."
