The South African men’s U20 national football team captain, Madisha Modjeka is ready for war as Amajita prepare to take on Ghana in their first match of the U20 CAF African Youth Championships in Senegal.
“By the time we travel to Dakar for our last match against Zambia, we should know where we stand and I honestly hope that we would have sealed our spot to the World Cup in New Zealand,” said the towering Mamelodi Sundowns defender in media statement for the South African Football Association.
“There is always this rivalry developing between Ghana and South Africa. We know what happened at the Africa Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea and it would be nice to get even on Monday.”
“It won’t be easy considering the Ghanaians reputation in junior tournaments but I presume if we want to be the best on the continent and even the world, we should stand up against the so-called giants,” he added.
Amajita commence their CAF African Youth championships campaign against Ghana on Monday in Saly, then play Mali on Thursday, March 12 before rounding off their group stage assignment against Zambia on Sunday, March 15 in Dakar.
