Amajita are hard at work ahead of tomorrow’s African Youth Championships second group-stage match against Lesotho.
The match will take place at the Dobsonville Stadium and kickoff is at 12h00. Amajita lost 4-2 against Mali in the opening match on Sunday and will be looking to better their Group A standings. South Africa and Lesotho occupy position three and four, respectively with no points below Mali and Egypt who both have three points after one match. Head coach Maqsood Chenia says the team is expecting a very tough encounter against Lesotho and that the technical team has been hard at work planning for tomorrow’s match. He adds that the team must move on from a disappointing result against Mali and focus on the remaining matches and try to get maximum points. "The match against Mali is obviously something we would like to correct in terms of converting our chances into goals. We knew it would be a strong Mali team, but we must also take the blame of not scoring from all those chances we created but there are a lot of positives taken from that match and it is gratifying to know that a lot of people thoroughly enjoyed watching the boys’ display. "The match against Lesotho will be some sort of psychological warfare because we have a lot of history with them. We need a result as much as they do, so it will be a very interesting match," he says. CLICK HERE for the AYC news, fixtures, results and tables.
