Amajita Set Sights On Commonwealth Trophy

Amajita captain, Motjeka Madisha, has declared that winning the Commonwealth Cup is top priority for the U20 national squad after their convincing 2-0 victory over hosts, Russia in the quarter-finals which has catapulted them to the last four stages of the competition.

Amajita Through to semi-finals of the Commonwealth Cup

Amajita take on Belarus in the semi-final of the Commonwealth Cup in St Petersburg on Friday afternoon, January 23, with the match scheduled to begin at 16:30.

The winner will play either Turkmenistan or Finland in the final scheduled for Sunday, January 25.

“We can feel the trophy is within our grasp. We overcame a tough home side Russia and I think that was the most difficult part, no disrespect to Belarus, Finland or Turkmenistan,” said Madisha in a statement from the South African Football Association.

“The feeling of lifting this trophy will be great. I have spoken to most of my teammates and they also think winning this tournament would catapult their careers to the next level.”

“Most of us are still fringe players at our respective clubs but we think after this tournament, coaches will start looking at us seriously,” added the Tembisa-born 20-year-old.

“It will also boost our confidence going to the CAF African Youth tournament scheduled for Senegal. Winning is always a good culture and that is what we want to develop in this team. Tomorrow is also a big day for South African football. We want to start that perfect day by beating Belarus to set the tone for Bafana’s game against Senegal later.”
