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.
