Amajita head coach Solly Luvhengo has named a 22-man squad to play against Nigeria in the African Youth Championship qualifier at the Mbombela Stadium on September 21.
As part of their preparations for this huge task, Amajita played and defeated Botswana in two international friendly matches, scoring eight goals without conceding.
Luvhengo is confident of beating the Nigerians, saying: “We need the same kind of commitment, focus and passion as shown in the matches against Congo and Botswana. If we can manage to maintain this consistency, then we are destined for greatness.”
Amajita qualified for this next round on the away goals rule after beating DR Congo 1-0 at Milpark Stadium last month to make the score 2-2 on aggregate after losing 2-1 in the first leg.
The African Under-20 Championship finals are set to take place in Algeria in March 2013, and will also serve as a qualifier for the Fifa Under-20 World Cup which takes place in the same year in Turkey.
