Amajimbos draw with Mali

Posted: 29 March 2015 Time: 14:49

The national U-17 team drew 1-1 with Mali in a friendly at Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit on Sunday.

Amajimbos fell behind to Sekou Koita's 50th minute strike but equalised via Luvuyo Mkhatshana in the 79th minute of the tie - which served as a curtain-raiser for Bafana Bafana's tussle with African giants Nigeria.

Second-half substitute Koita pounced from close range, while Bidvest Wits' Mkhatshana headed in a cross from Malebogo Modise.

The sides clashed twice at the recent CAF U-17 Championships, with Mali claiming title honours with a 2-0 victory in the Final after drawing their first meeting 2-2 in the group stages.


Both countries have qualified for the U-17 World Cup in Chile later this year.
