Amajimbos Hope For Flying Start In Chile

Molefi Ntseki will lead his Amajimbos team out in Concepcion this evening as South Africa compete in the FIFA U17 World Cup for the very first time.
 
After a remarkable qualifying campaign that saw Ntseki’s boys come within one game of being crowned the champions of Africa in their age group, the tournament itself gets underway for them tonight.
 
The game, which is set for 22h00 South African time, will see Amajimbos take on Costa Rica, a team that were the second highest scorers at the U17 CONCACAF Championships as they qualified for the WC through the playoffs. 
 
There is one man in particular that Ntseki and his technical team will no doubt have earmarked, with 16-year-old Andy Reyes having grabbed five goals during their qualifying campaign. 
 
South Africa go into this game on the back of a good win against New Zealand in their most recent friendly outing, a game that was their last before tonight’s showdown in Concepcion. 
 
The two South African players that will certainly stick out as threats are SuperSport United academy duo, Nelson Maluleke and Khanyisa Mayo, two players that scored several vital goals as South Africa made it to this stage. 
 
While Ntseki’s side had one of the weakest defences in qualifying, and recently lost heavily to their Brazilian counterparts, their prowess in front of goals has certainly helped them in the past, and they will be hoping that it can do so again against La Sele this evening.
