SA U17 Lose To WC Host Chile

International Friendly

Result: South Africa U17 0-1 Chile U17

Date: 27 September 2015

Venue: Athlone Stadium

The national U17 side, Amajimbos, lost 1-0 to Chile in an international friendly at the Athlone Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

It was Amajimbos' final warm-up friendly in the country, before they departed for Chile to compete at the U17 World month.

The conditions were certainly not helping the players, most of whom continue to slip on the slippery pitch.

Amajimbos' Khanyiso Mayo was presented with an opening after 40 minutes, but the strike failed to capatalise on the chance.

While, Sanele Tshabalala pulled off a save minutes, as the sides went into the break with the score locked at 0-0.

Molefi Ntseki's men pushed for  an opening goal in the early stages of the second half but Luvuyo Mkatsana's header was saved by Chile goalkeeper, Zacarias Lopez.

However, it was the visitors who snatched the win in the final stages when René Melendez surprised Tshabalala with a strike from the halfway line in the 85th minute.

Amajimbos Starting XI; Tshabalala; Mohamme;, Mukumela; Cupido; Frosler; Qinisile; Dlala; Maluleke; Kodisang; Mayo
