Amajimbos will be hoping to be crowned African Youth Championship winners when they face Mali in the final on Sunday.
The South Africans secured a spot in the final after beating Nigeria 1-0 in their semi-final tie on Wednesday afternoon, thanks to a solitary strike form Khanyisa Mayo.
This is the first time Amajimbos have reached the final of this competition, with their best ever finish coming in 2005, where they finished fourth in Gambia.
Amajimbos head coach, Molefi Ntseki, admitted that getting to the World Cup was the main target but he would like to win it all in Niger.
“Playing in the final is a cherry on top for us, as our slogan coming to this tournament was ‘ROAD TO CHILE’ that we have done with flying colours. But it would be nice to go all the way," Ntseki said in a statement released by SAFA.
“We have played Mali before, and we know what to expect from them in tomorrow’s final. We have also sat down as a team and analyzed our strengths and weaknesses. The boys are ready for round two, and I am confident that we will have a good game tomorrow,”
Midfielder, Nelson Maluleke, who has bagged two goals at the tournament so far, says the side are not thinking about losing and admits there is pressure being the captain of the side.
"It's our first final as South Africa and for me this is a tournament we were dreaming about. This was our dream, to be in the final. Right now, we are not thinking about losing," he told the CAF website.
"For me as captain, I'm learning, there is pressure on the captain. All eyes are on you as captain and you have to do better on the field of play."
Mali qualified top of their group for the semi-finals with victories against Cameroon, Ivory Coast and a 2-2 draw against South Africa, before they met Guinea in the semifinals and emerged 2-1 victors to book a place in the final against Amajimbos.
