The South African Under-20 national team, Amajita, will play a practice match against National First Division side Sivutsa Stars.
The match will take place today at Mbombela Stadium. Kick-off is at 19h00.
The match is in preparation of the 2013 African Youth Championship qualifying clash against Nigeria on Friday at the same venue (Mbombela Stadium), starting at 19h00.
Head coach Solly Luvhengo says the practice match will afford him and his technical team a very good opportunity to have a comprehensive look at the team in a competitive situation and adjust accordingly.
"The most important thing for us right now is that the players are in the right state of mind and must maintain it. The preparations did not start with this camp or with this match; they started when we played against Botswana in the two friendly matches that we won.
"The clash on Friday is a pressure match and we need to prepare accordingly, but I am confident that my players will do well," said Luvhengo.
