COSAFA U17 Cup

Result: South Africa 2-3 Zambia 

Date: 23 July 2017

The South African men's U17 side suffered a 3-2 loss to Zambia in their second COSAFA Cup encounter on Sunday afternoon.

The Zambians  had a couple chances in the early stages of the encounter but Amajimbos goalkeeper, Constadino Chrustodoulou managed to hold his own.

Zambia eventually opened the scoring after 20 minutes courtesy of a strike from Christopher Phiri.

Six minutes later, it was 2-0 to Zambia with Lameck Banda registering his name on the score-sheet.

It got worse for Amajimbos just before the break, as Zambia bagged a third goal thanks to an individual effort from Banda.

The score remained 3-0 as the sides entered the halftime break.

The South Africans went close to reducing the deficit after the hour-mark, but Azola Tshobeni failed to convert from close range.

Coach Molefi Ntseki made two changes after 70 minutes as Tshobeni and Olifile Ramatlo made way for Junior Nare and Lungile Makhambi.

Amajimbos did manage to pull a goal back in the 81st minute thanks to a strike from Mare.

Mare grabbed his and South Africa's second six minutes later to reduce the deficit, however Zambia managed to hold on for the win.

Here's how they line up:

Amajimbos XI: Constandin Christodoulo (GK); Sizwe Ntanzi; Koketso Mathibe; Kieron Jacks (C); Joshua Momdu; Cade Erickson; Storm Jonas ; Mohammed Shahabodien; Azola Tshobeni ; James McFarlene; Olifile Ramatlo

Substitutions: Thabang Maema; Omphile Moeletsi; Juniour Nare; Juniour Khiba; Alex Da Silva; Lungile Makhambi; Bryn Deeley; Boikanyo Segotlong
