The South African Football Association has confirmed that Senong did not have his full contingent in the squad for his first training session, as the players had schooling commitments, although, the head coach remains satisfied with his pool of players.

Speaking to SAFA’s official website, Senong said, “We had a great response from all 21 players in the first training session and we are very grateful to all the clubs that released their players. We are going to have an intense week of training in preparation for the COSAFA U20 Youth Championships and announce our preliminary squad as soon as possible.
