Amajita head coach Thabo Senong is looking at inspiring his U-20 side to victory when the South Africans take on Malawi in a crucial first leg third round Africa U-20 Cup of Nations qualifier. 

Senong and his charges are currently in Zambia playing a fixture against the Zambian national juniors in preparation for their first leg qualifier which will be played at home.  

“The challenge has been the off-season,” Senong said. “We are well aware that most of our boys haven’t been playing regular football mainly because of that. We wanted to help aid that. We want them fit (for the Afcon U-20 qualifier). And that’s why we decided to organise this friendly match against Zambia,” said Senong, on the South African Football Association website.

“We are happy with the fact that some of our boys are at the advanced training phase with their respective clubs,” he added saying that it's very crucial for the development of any player.

“However, we also stressed that success must always go hand in hand with humility. That’s key,” he concluded.

Amajita return to South Africa on Monday to continue with their preparations for the first leg which will be played on Sunday at the Moruleng Stadium in Rustenburg. The match will start at 15:30.
