Amajita got their U20 Afcon campaign off to an impressive start with a 3-1 victory over Cameroon last night. Singh scored all three goals for Amajita and duly walked away with the Man of the Match award for his performance.

Speaking to SAFA Media, the Portugal-based young star said his goals were a result of teamwork. 

"I want to thank the team for the performance we put up last night. Had it not been for the team effort, I would not have scored the goals I did. (Sibongakonke) Mbatha did some great work in ensuring we got the set-piece, and the penalty was something we had worked on at training. My third goal was a great counter-attack and (Itumeleng) Shopane managed to give me the all-important pass, which I converted. We were also encouraged by our solid defence, which made things easy for us. Although we conceded early, we managed to regroup quickly and stayed focused until the end to get the crucial win," Singh said.
