The Siya crew can reveal that Mamelodi Sundowns defender, Madisha Modjeka will remain the Amajita captain, heading into the CAF African Youth Championships whilst SuperSport United’s Ayabulela Magqwaka will be the vice captain.
Soccer Laduma reported that the two defenders were appointed by Amajita coach, Thabo Senong to lead the squad on an interim basis, however following the U20’s successful preparations in Port Elizabeth and the final squad revealed earlier today, the two will remain in their captaincy roles for the tournament.
“Modjeka and Magqwaka have done a sterling job in leading the side during the preparation stages, and the coach, Thabo Senong has full confidence in the two players to lead the side well in Senegal,” confirmed the South African Football Association’s Head of Communications, Dominic Chimhavi.
The Amajita squad were in Tshwane earlier today for their final medical assessments ahead of the departure for Senegal, which is scheduled for Wednesday, February 25.
The U20s will hope to emulate their junior counterparts, Amajimbos and clinch a semi-final spot at the AYC’s which will see them gain entry into the U20 FIFA World in New Zealand.
