Senong happy with Amajita chemistry

SA National Teams

Amajita were meant to play Ghana in a friendly on Monday to prepare for the U-20 Africa Cup of Nations which kicks off in Niger this Saturday, but the game was cancelled and they played Police instead, winning the game 3-0.

Senong is pleased with the chemistry in the team going into the competition this weekend.

Amajita open their campaign with a Group A clash against Niger. Burundi and Nigeria are also in the pool.

“This was not a bad exercise for us,” Senong said, reflecting on their friendly match against AS Police. “The boys were challenged in that practice match, though they were a bit disappointed that they did not get the chance to play against Ghana in our friendly.

“Sometimes it is a bit of a risk to go into an international tournament without having played a single friendly match against another national side. However, I am pleased with the team chemistry and the overall performance the boys gave in that matchup.

“I still believe there is still room for improvement.”
