Amajita Get Good Win In Addis Ababa

African Youth Championship Qualifying Second Round

Result: Ethiopia U20 0-2 South Africa U20

Date: 11 May 2014

Venue: National Stadium in Addis Ababa.

South Africa U20 improved their chances of progressing to the next round of the African Youth Championships Qualifying when they got a good 2-0 away win against Ethiopia on Sunday afternoon.

In a match dominated by Amajita, substitute Tshepo Chaine and Siyanda Ngubo scored the important away goals to give South Africa a 2-0 lead, with the second leg of the tie to be played in South Africa in two weeks time.

Amajita almost scored in the fourth minute of the game but a header from Denwin Farmer was just wide.

Ethiopian keeper Sheeran Asegid was the hero twice in two minutes, as he first denied Tlotlo Leepile in the ninth minute, then Ngubo two minutes later.

In the 28th minute Ngubo came close again, but his shot was cleared off the line with the keeper stranded.

The home side nearly took the lead shortly after half-time but goalkeeper Dumisani Msibi used his legs to stop a good shot.

Despite having the better chances, Amajita only opened the scoring in the 69th minute, when Chaine took advantage of a defensive error by the Ethiopians to make it 1-0.

Ayabulela Magqwaka’s team looked dangerous on the counter attack throughout the game, and in the 85th minute Ngubo scored with a powerful header to complete a deserved 2-0 win.

Right at the end of the game, Ethiopian Gach Matay was red carded for a dangerous tackle on Chaine.Shakes Mashaba will be pleased with the victory, and with the players who came into the squad, with a number of first-choice players unavailable due to PSL commitments.

Victory would see them through to the next round where they would have to play Cameroon or Burundi for a berth at the finals. Cameroon defeated Burundi 1-0 away in their first leg match.

Amajita Starting XI: Msibi, Motjeka, Modiba, Farmer, Magqwaka, Leepile, Lithuli, Maraisane, Lakay, Ntuli, Ngubo

Ethiopia Starting XI: Asegid, Andargachew, Binyam, Mataylul, Henock, Surafel, Aklilu, Natnael, Yared, Behailu, Dawa
