Egypt beat South Africa in Africa Youth Championships

Posted: 23 April 2011 Time: 13:59

Egypt beat Amajita 1-0 in the 2011 African Youth Championships at Dobsonville Stadium to qualify for the semi-finals.

This was a match that Amajita had to win to qualify for the semi-finals but a defensive error cost them.

The goal was scored just before half-time when a back pass was intercepted by Egyptian striker Mohamed Hamdy who then lobbed the ball over goalkeeper Ronwen Williams to score.

Both sides missed many good scoring opportunities throughout the match due to poor finishing.

In the other game Mali and Lesotho shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw at Millpark Stadium in their final group stage match.

The Group A leaders Mali consolidated their place at the top of the standings after the draw, having won two games already.

Ballo Drissa scored for Mali in the 17th minute and seemed on course for a win before Mosiuda Christopher Boseka equalised for an impressive Lesotho in the 82nd minute.

Mali and Egypt advance from Group A into the semifinals and will both represent Africa at the 2011 Fifa Under-20 World Cup in Colombia later this year.

Very weak- crazy mistakes, no athletes just kids chasing, trying- an dthey did try. And unlike under 23s no proper passing and, I am sorry: no proper coaching. Sad,sad,sad!

Da fact dt none of those youngsters feature for any of the PSL teams shd b a gr8 cause 4 concern 4 us as a footballing nation. These boys must pull up deir socks & make it difficult 4 PSL coaches to ignore dem, but watching dem play does nt challenge any PSL to want to draft dem in his first team...

These boys must shape up, development coaches can only do so much 4 dem...

Firstly I'm unhappy because of this result.

Secondly, I'm unhappy about this report because the way it is said the goal came about is false. Yes, there was a back pass from a defender (Baloyi) to the goalkeeper, which was not intercepted by anyone. The 'keeper then sent a weak forward pass (not back pass) to another defender and thats when an Egyptian player stole the ball heating it with his knee over our 'keeper.

Thirdly, I'm angry that KickOff is allowing some people to place adverts (that has nothing to do with soccer - it even sounds like a 419 scum) in this forum.

Last year Ghana did so well in the WC. Few of the players in their squad were members of the U20 Ghana team. Some of the Egyptian U20 team that beat us are regular players for top team in Egypt.

Can someone in SAFA or the PSL explain to the nation why players like;

Can someone in SAFA or the PSL explain to the nation why players like;
Siyanda Xulu (Sundowns 30/12/1991),
Avive Longer (Wits 20/06/1993),
Letsie Koapeng (Wits 17/02/1992),
Bhongolwethu Jayiye (Wits),
Siphesihle Nzimande(Arrows 30/08/1991)
are not in the U20 team.

It is clear SA don't take such tournaments seriously.

Again the youngsters proove me right, Football in SA is dead. People in this country know nothing about football & will keeep being heartbroken everytime.

Having been booted out early in the qualifying rounds by unknown Lesotho.........was a clear indication that our boys are USELESS.Anywhere even if we had won the cup, we would have done so by default. Shame SAFA!!

Almost all these players are from Gauteng clubs. What do you expect when the selection process is so narrow?
