Amajimbos have been drawn alongside Costa Rica, North Korea and Russia in Group E for the U17 World Cup in Chile which gets underway on October 19.

Ntseki is confident his side can overcome any challenges put in their way and indicated the draw has fuelled his expectations.

“After beating Cameroon and qualifying for the World Cup, we started saying to ourselves, ‘Now we are going to compete on a world stage where there is so much pressure and at the same time the level is very high.’ So we went to the draw knowing very well that we can play anybody.”

“When the draw was done – Group A, B, C, D, and then you see yourself coming in Group E – then you look at the group and you see you have Costa Rica, North Korea and Russia, you start saying to yourself that it means I have to take my expectations to a higher level.”

“Playing against these other countries means we have to do well, and that means our performance, our team organisation and our team tactical execution must be better and higher than the other teams in our group,” Ntseki said.
