Amajita lost 2-0 against Italy on Wednesday morning (SA time) in their second group game at the World Cup. The defeat has diminished the Mzansi side’s chances of qualifying for the knockout stages of the tournament. 

Reflecting on the team’s performance following the disappointing loss to Italy, Mokoena said their participation in the tournament is a learning curve for the team.

“It’s really disappointing because we came here determined to win the game, but things didn’t go our way. However, I think we played well, but we made some costly mistake. I think we shouldn’t be too harsh on ourselves because we are still growing and learning the game, so there’s still room to improve,” said Mokoena as quoted by Limar Media.

The SuperSport United starlet is impressed by the high standard of the World Cup.

“The level in this World Cup is high compared to the U20 African Nations Cup, but as young players, we needed such an experience so that we can take it back home in South Africa to improve our domestic game,” concluded Mokoena. 

Amajita play Uruguay in their final last group match of the FIFA U20 World Cup.
