SAFA Lauds Amajita Despite AYC Exit

Amajita went into their final inconsequential match in the CAF African Youth Championships against Zambia with only national pride to play for.

Senong Says Amajita must learn from their mistakes 

The South Africans opened their AYC campaign with a 2-0 defeat to Ghana and a subsequent 2-1 defeat to Mali, which effectively knocked Amajita out of the tournament and from a chance at qualifying for the semi-finals and berth at the 2015 U20 World Cup in New Zealand.

However with encouraging words from the South African Football Association President Dr Danny Jordaan ahead of the encounter, Thabo Senong’s men were able to rally and register their first victory with a 5-2 thumping over the Zambians to restore national pride.

“We would have loved for the U20’s to emulate their younger compatriots and qualify for the World Cup in New Zealand, but in football sometimes things don’t go your way,” SAFA Communications Head, Dominic Chimhavi told the Siya crew.

“It’s a huge disappointment but we have to show character as the boys did against Zambia. They came strongly and were able to finish with a flourish.”

“The experience from this competition will go a long way in helping Amajita become more established at playing international football. There is a resurgence in the South African youth football and we need to ensure that the momentum is kept,” concluded Chimhavi.
