Senong is currently in Port Elizabeth with the Amajita squad as they conclude their final preparations, which includes playing Chippa United’s U19 side on Sunday, February 21 at the Isaac Wolfson Stadium, before departing for the West African state.

The Amajita mentor will be faced with the trying task of selecting his final 21 players who will make the trip to Senegal.

“The purpose is to prepare the team for the upcoming championship in Senegal. We will also be playing a farewell match on Sunday,” revealed Senong to the South African Football Association media.  

“We are looking at selecting the best 21 players that will represent South Africa. We will be also preparing the team physically to make sure we have a solid team when the tournament starts.”

“It is always very difficult. If you look at the current Amajita side, we have a big pool of players to source from, but it’s about getting the right balance.”

“It is also unfortunate that we are controlled by numbers and not everybody will make it but we promise we will get the best squad that will represent us very well at the tournament,” added the U20 coach.

“We return back to Johannesburg for a training session at the Nike Football Centre in Soweto on an artificial turf because our first two matches are on such a surface.

"We intend to depart for Senegal either on the 27th or 28th for final preparations and we might play some friendly matches there,” he concluded.
