Amajimbos are preparing for the African Youth Championships in Niger which will commence on Sunday, February 15 till March 1.

Central defender, Thendo Mukumela fouled an Eastern Cape forward in the 22nd minute of the match, and the referee did not hesitate to point to the penalty spot. Mihlali Mkonto confidently took to the spot kick, and put the provincial team 1-0 ahead, however Luvuyo Mkhatshana finally timed his run perfectly and equalized for Amajimbos with a few minutes to halftime.

Mkonto gave the Eastern Cape team the lead for a second time in the match when he scored a wonderful free kick in the 89th minute which left goalkeeper Sizwe Skie dumbstruck.

“This was a very important match for us, and even better that we managed to break away from the normal match venues. The purpose of the friendly was for us to get a chance to have a look at all the players hence there were eight substitutions at one go,” said Amajimbos coach, Molefi Ntseki on the South African Football Association website.

“The result was not the focus of today but rather to see where we are ahead of our travel, we are therefore fully aware of where we are in our plans and where we are going,” he added.
