Depleted AmaGlug-glug head for Angola

AmaGlug-glug face Angola this weekend

Posted: 11 February 2011 Time: 11:33 am

The South African national Under-23 team, AmaGlug-glug, will finally get their 2010 Maputo All Africa Games qualification campaign underway on Friday when they play Angola in the first leg away in Luanda in a match that was originally set to be played a month ago. 

The match between the two Cosafa powerhouses has been postponed three times before with the lack of communication between the two countries blamed for the cancellations.   However, the game will definitely be played at the Citadela Stadium in Luanda with AmaGlug-glug having left today (Thursday).   The return leg of the first round qualifier is scheduled for Sinaba Stadium in Daveyton on February 20.   AmaGlug-glug has been forced to travel with a depleted team after a number of PSL clubs refused to release players for the non-Fifa calendar match. The situation has become worse by the fact that even a number of players that have been regulars in recent times have not been released by their clubs.   The most notable absentee is Bongani Ndulula who has gate crashed his way into the Orlando Pirates first team after superb showings in the Under-23 squad over the last three months.   Though concerned about not having his regulars, coach Ephraim 'Shakes' Mashaba insists they will still put up a brave fight for participation in the continental games that run from September 3-18.
