Senong On Amajita Draw With Zambia

Thabo Senong comments on Amajita draw against Zambia ahead of U-20 African Cup of Nations qualifier

By Soccer Laduma - Jul 09, 2018 02:03 PM

Head coach of South Africa’s U-20 men’s national team, Thabo Senong says the draw against Zambia’s juniors was integral in preparing the team for their first leg U-20 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Malawi.

Amajita played to a 3-3 draw in a friendly match against Zambia this past weekend. 

“This was a good match for us in the sense that we got to analyse what we needed to see,” Senong said to Safa.net.

“For us, the match was a tactical surprise as Zambia exposed the areas we need to strengthen. It also gave us the opportunity to work with our new players such as Khanyisile Mayo and Keenan Abrams and to see how they would affect the game. It’s important that we form new combinations when we face Malawi. 

“It won’t be easy playing against Malawi, we have seen their goal rate analysis. They have scored five goals in both their home and away leg qualifiers against Angola, so heading into this week’s game we don’t undermine,” concluded the Amajita coach.

Amajita have since returned from the trip to Zambia and are currently preparing for the first leg which will be played this coming Sunday at the Moruleng Stadium in Rustenburg. The match will start at 15:30.
