COSAFA U20 Championship

Result: South Africa U20 2-1 Lesotho U20

Date: 16 December 2017

Venue: Arthur Davies Stadium

Amajita were crowned COSAFA U20 Championship winners after defeating Lesotho 2-1 in the final at the Arthur Davies Stadium.

The South Africans broke the deadlock after just five minutes with Lyle Foster getting on the score-sheet.

Thabo Senong's charges did manage to carve out a few more efforts at goal, but the Lesotho goalkeeper was alert to all the strikes.

However, Amajita were not to be denied in the 39th minute when Kamohelo Sambo registered his name on the score-sheet after being set up by  Keanu Cupido.

That proved to be the final chance of the half as the South Africans went into the break with a two-goal cushion.

After a quiet start to the second half,Lesotho pulled a goal back in the 59th minute courtesy of a strike from Mokokoane.

The South Africans carve out a couple more chances as the half went on with Happy Mashiane going closest after 82 minutes.

Nevertheless, Senong's charges managed to see out the closing stages of the second half to claim the win and the COSAFA title.

Here's how they line up:

SA XI: Tshabalala; Mabiliso; Sambo; Mukumela; Cupido; Zuke; Mbulu; Mkatshana; Mashiane; Ntsabaleng; Foster.

Subs: Kubheka; Leaner; Cross; Modise; Bull;  Maswanganyi; Sibiya
