Amajita squad to play Nigeria

Solly Luvhengo names Amajita squad to play Nigeria

Posted: 18 September 2012 Time: 8:14 am

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.

Amajita squad: Jerry Mxabo (Supersport United), Luvo Nkala (Orlando Pirates), Lebo Ngubeni (University of Pretoria), Junior Sibande (University of Pretoria), Seun Ledwaba (Mamelodi Sundowns), Kwanda Mngonyama (Mamelodi Sundowns), Mbongeni Gumede (Orlando Pirates), Keagan Dolly (Ajax Cape Town), Siyabonga Zulu (Sivutsa), Travis Graham (Ajax Cape Town), Menzi Masuku (Africa Sports Academy), Gershin Kock (Vasco Da Gama), Luckyboy Mokoena (Bidvest Wits), Chris Matombo (Pace Setters), Abbubaker Mobara (Ajax Cape Town), Katleho Maphathe (Roses United), Percy Tau (Mamelodi Sundowns), Snethemba Ngidi (Supersport United), Cebo Meyiwa (Supersport United), Thabani Mthembu (Platinum Stars), Asive Langwe (Bidvest Wits) and Lorenzo Gordinho (Kaizer Chiefs)

@Tibubu, I don't know bastards like you still exist in this modern day south Africa. We are here talking about football and you brought your hatred and racism. Where is it on record that Nigerians are drug dealers or that their players cheat ? Are you FIFA or CAF ? Idiots like you would never see anything good even in your own life and that is why why insult others in a decent forum like this. Disgusting maggot like you.....Goodluck to Amajitas...
