Amajita playing Zwolle tonight

SA National Teams

This will be their third and final match of the first phase of the 2017 U-20 World Cup preparations.

Amajita lost 1-0 to VFL Bochum of Germany in the first game in Bochum this past Saturday.

But the Thabo Senong-led side turned the tables in the second fixture against a select Amsterdam side, winning 2-0 in a practice match yesterday in the capital city of the Netherlands.

Stunning goals from Kobamelo Kodisang and Khanyisa Mayo gave Amajita victory, leaving Senong highly impressed with his players.

“This was another good match, against a fairly good side. They challenged us physically and were very solid in defence, which pushed us to be more creative in front of goal. Many of the players showed great hunger and that pleases the technical team,” said Senong.

“This is a very crucial week for the players as they have their last chance when we face PEC Zwolle to earn their spot in the final 21-man squad which will represent South Africa at the 2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup.”

The U-20 World Cup squad announcement is expected on Friday.
