Posted: 7 December 2017 Time: 08:36
Amajita coach Thabo Senong will be handing out a number of debuts in today's COSAFA U-20 Youth Championships opener with Mauritius in Zambia.
Kick-off is at 15h00 at Nkana Stadium.
The South Africa U-20 squad have trained once since arriving in Kitwe.
"We are happy with how the players have responded to the conditions we faced in training today [Wednesday]," said Senong.
"After last night’s heavy rains, the pitch was not in the greatest of conditions but we expected this problem.
"All players are fit and are fighting for a spot in the starting eleven, so once again we as the technical staff have a healthy headache to attend to.
"Many of the players will be receiving their first caps and this is of course great for the development of our team, as we are building towards something bigger within the next two years."
Amajita will face Mozambique on Saturday before concluding their Group B campaign against Egypt on December 12.
