The U20 South African national team defeated Costa Rica 2-1 in an international friendly encounter on Monday, May 15, in preparation for the U20 FIFA World Cup campaign.
Amajita are currently in South Korea where they continue their preparation for the 2017 FIFA World Cup which will get underway on Sunday, May 21, until June 11.
Speaking to the South African Football Association’s official website, Head Coach, Thabo Senong, admits that his side still needs to work on some of their tactical approaches but thinks that the friendly encounter against Costa Rica was a good exercise for the team.
“We are very grateful to Costa Rica for the tough challenge, this was the kind of exercise we needed. We are still very slow, mainly because we are still working on our tactical approach and polishing up in some areas of our game,” Senong said.
“The players are getting back into their normal routine and we have almost adapted to the different time zones and climate. We can’t wait for the World Cup to kick off. I believe come Sunday (21 May) when we play our first match we will be ready,” he added.
