Posted: 10 September 2012 Time: 10:09 am

The South African Under-20 Men's National team, Amajita, beat Botswana 4-0 in an international friendly played at the Molepolole Stadium in Gaborone on Saturday.

Amajita opened the scoring through leading scorer Thabani Mthembu who converted a penalty in the 20th minute.

The visitors led 1-0 at half-time.

They however, came with guns blazing in the second half attacking from all angles and were awarded with another penalty which Mthembu again scored in the 52nd minute.

Percy Tau increased the score to 3-0 in the 70th minute and Amajita captain, Mbongeni Gumede completed the rout following a nicely constructed move by Menzi Masuku to make it 4-0 in the 75th minute.

Amajita head coach Solly Luvhengo said he was happy with the performance.

"The boys played well against a very defensive Botswana. We managed to settle in well into the second half of the game and score three goals. I am satisfied with the goal average and would like to see the team carry this winning habit going forward."

"This is a good start to preparations for the African Youth Championship qualifiers against Nigeria, the ultimate aim is prepare for obstacle that lies ahead and I would like to see us qualify for the AYC finals," said Luvhengo.

The South Africans meet the same opponents on Tuesday at the Mbombela Stadium on Tuesday in which they will play as curtain-raisers for the Bafana/Mozambique encounter. Kick -off will be at 17h30.

Amajita arrived back in the country this afternoon and will drive to Mbombela on Monday.

Eish i feel sorry for you guys coz all of a sudden you will be history. You should pray that you will still be effective by the age of 32 coz thats when you will be recognized by Bafana coaches.
And for that also to happen can you all sign for Kaizer Chiefs coz at any club you won't be noticed. But this will be a tough decision to make guys coz joining Kaizer Chiefs you know you will be perenial failures even though you will be part of the failing national team.

Your facts are failing you man. Sundowns and Pirates has got a whole pool of potential bafana players and they cant all play because of the greed of these two teams to have every walking playwers in their books, and they dont play them because you can only play 11 at a go with 3 substitutions. On teh other hand, chiefs has got bafana material players and all of them are getting first 11 berth.
Your "scientific" analysis or "hopefull factual rubbish" is not only disastrous, but full of sick jealousy and hate. Pity it doesnt change any fact, which renders it a useless waste of time to both yourself and the reader. Next time try making your point without adding Chiefs to your spew. Lets see if that will work.

Ag, Botswana is a small team and nothing to write home about. Their senior team is having a reality check now and they realise now that they had a lucky fantasy run last season and now its gone.

FORMER Bidvest Wits coach Roger De Sa has made startling claims against his ex wife, saying she owns an unlicensed gun.
In his court papers before the Randburg Magistrates' Court, De Sa hit back at allegations made by his ex-wife earlier this year when she applied for a protection order against the coach.

This after De Sa started harassing and threatening Henderson and her new boyfriend Deon van Rensburg with violence.

In her founding affidavit in May, Nicole Henderson claimed, among other things, that De Sa owns a gun and that he is mentally unstable.

"I do not have a firearm and am not in possession of any firearms," De Sa said in his opposing affidavit before the court.

"It is ... the applicant who has a firearm that is not licensed, being a small pistol."

About Henderson's claim that De Sa was always threatening to beat her and her new boyfriend - Free State businessman Deon van Rensburg - with a baseball bat, the former Bafana Bafana goalkeeper said he kept the bat for his own safety.

"I always have a baseball bat in my car, which is usually under my seat, for protection," explained De Sa.

Van Rensburg also sought help from the Pretoria High Court in May to keep De Sa at bay.

In her court papers, Henderson alleged that De Sa was mentally unstable and that she was scared of what he was capable of doing to her.

Said Henderson: "He tracks me down. I am not sure if I am being followed. He is mentally abusing me with ugly words."

De Sa this week denied all this in court papers, saying: "I deny that I am not mentally stable.

"I find it strange that the applicant, as a hairdresser, has the qualification to make any verdict on my mental health.

"The applicant is in no position to make a professional assessment as of my mental health."

He also denied tracking her down.

The only time he had a nasty altercation with Henderson, De Sa said, was when one of his friends told him that he had seen her at a hotel in the Free State.

He said he sent an SMS saying: "You neglected the children, you have no money but you are travelling to Clarens."

He further contended that Henderson was not truthful to the court with her reasons for wanting a protection order.

He argued that Henderson's behaviour contradicted her claim that her life was under threat.

"If the applicant was really living in fear of myself she would have made sure that same [the protection order] was served straight after it was granted on ... and not have waited for a month and a half.

"Since the interim order was served the applicant even invited me inside the property [Henderson's home], having a chat without any incident," he said
