The U20 South African national team head coach, Thabo Senong says that he believes that he selected a balanced team as he looks to guide his charges to challenge in the COSAFA Cup competition.
The U20 South African national team will be jetting off to Zambia for the 2017 U20 Youth Championships scheduled to take place from 6 to 16 December 2017.
Speaking to the South African Football Association's website, Senong said, “We have had a great camp and believe we have selected a balanced yet attractive team. The technical staff deliberated throughout the weekend on a few players and this was a healthy headache to have as we did final assessments.
“We are looking forward to a great tournament where we will be facing oppositions with different styles of play.
“We believe we have a good team but have no intention of putting pressure on the players because we are working on a bigger objective. We want to be able to give all 20 players a run during the tournament and we will emphasise to them on a daily basis that they must enjoy the challenge at hand,” Senong added.
