Head Coach Thabo Senong’s side played three practice matches against European teams during their stay in the Netherlands and will now be returning back home to Mzansi, where the coach and his technical team will have to pick the final 21-man World Cup squad. 

The U20 FIFA World Cup will get underway on May 20, until June 11 this year in South Korea. Speaking to the South African Football Association’s official website, Senong revealed that the training matches in the Netherlands was a worthwhile experience and he is set to announce his World Cup squad before their next phase of preparations. 

“Our work here is done, and we saw many things that we need to work on ahead of the World Cup and at the same time we picked up some exciting and encouraging things from our players, so it was a worthwhile exercise,” Senong told the website.

“We are heading back home to continue with the next phase of preparations, which will lead us directly to the tournament and it is going to be intense. But before then, we will announce the squad that will represent us in South Korea – and these matches have helped the technical team a great deal when it comes to making the final selection,” he added.
