The young striker, who plays for the Bidvest Wits academy, has continued preparations for the African Youth African Championships along with his teammates and is relishing the prospect of representing South Africa.

“It is extremely hot here, that’s been the shock of my life. However we have been here a few days now and we are getting used to the high temperatures,” Mkhatshana tells the South African Football Association media.   

“Our medical team is also making sure that we drink a lot of water and only be outside when we have to be.”

Commenting on Amajimbos' chances in the AYC’s, Mkhatshana declared that the team has prepared well and that their progress in the tournament was entirely in their hands.  

“We believe we are a good side. We believe we have what it takes to go far in this tournament. After yesterday’s friendly practice match against Niger we know what to expect in the tournament and it is up to us to qualify for the 2015 FIFA U17 World Cup in Chile later this year,” he added.
