Date: 7 December 2016
Venue: Moruleng Stadium
South Africa U20 annihilated Lesotho U20 8-0 in their opening COSAFA cup clash on Wednesday night.
South Africa put on the pressure from the start as they produced three attacks in the first few minutes.
Only 12 minutes into the game the home side were in the lead. Shopane made the most of some poor goalkeeping to open the scoring for South Africa.
Five minutes later the hosts were two goals clear. Shopane was fouled in the box, giving Luther Singh the chance to score from the penalty spot.
In the 35th minute South Africa netted their third unanswered goal as Meyiwa found the back of the Lesotho net.
The home outfit took a 3-0 lead into the break and then scored yet another goal five minutes into the second half as Ngcobo provided the finish.
Amajita looked like adding even more to the scoreline as they hit the Lesotho crossbar twice within the space of two minutes.
The pain continued for the visitors as South Africa bagged a fifth goal in the 76th minute via Menzi Ndwandwe's strike.
The humiliation didn't end there. Moments later Sifundo Sibiya slotted a sixth for the home support to cheer before Sibongakonke Mbatha also put his name in lights with a seventh.
Sibiya scored his second of the night in the 89th minute to complete an 8-0 rout of the neighbours.
