Chiefs teen dreams of World Cup

Amajita qualified for the Africa Under-20 Cup of Nations which will be played in Niger. To qualify for the World Cup, they need to ensure they get to the semi-finals.

Ngcobo, whose ultimate dream is to play overseas, believes they have a squad good enough to qualify for the World Cup.

“This is a strong squad we have at Amajita, and I believe that we have what it takes to qualify for next year’s FIFA Under-20 World Cup (set to take place in Poland),” Ngcobo told the SAFA website.

“Everybody is just driven to do great and that’s a positive thing. The Under-20 World Cup will also serve as perfect platform for us to get scouted and possibly earn moves abroad. That’s where my sights are set now.”

The 18-year-old wants to play a key role for his club Kaizer Chiefs in the MultiChoice Diski Challenge.

“I’m planning to use this season’s MultiChoice Diski Challenge to get me sharper than I currently am in my play. I want to score more goals and provide plenty of assists for my club, while also being more effective when it’s time for us to drop back and defend in our reserve league matches.

“I believe that doing that will get me ready for next year’s AFCON tournament which is just seven months away.”
