The Amajita national U20 football team have arrived in Kitwe, Zambia to a warm welcome ahead of the COSAFA U20 Youth Championships.

South Africa received a warm welcome from a friendly group of football lovers,and were already put to task to impress during the youth tournament.

Amajita head coach Thabang Senong touched on the significance of this regional tournament and gave credit to event organisers, COSAFA and 2017 hosts Zambia for their efforts.

‘I’m overwhelmed by the warm welcome we’ve received since arriving and am glad to be back in Zambia since the 2017 AFCON earlier this year,’ said Senong. ‘We’re here to build the next generation of Amajita and of course to compete in the region.

‘I believe we’ll see some exciting football from all three groups and the top four may have an interesting twist to it this year’ said Senong.

South Africa had a light training session on Tuesday afternoon before shifting their focus to tournament mode from Wednesday when they turn their attention towards their opening group B match against Mauritius, on Thursday.

This match will be played at Nkana Stadium, in Kitwe and kick-off is scheduled for 3pm.
