The South African men’s Under-20 team, Amajita, have arrived safely in Maseru, Lesotho where they’ll take part in the 2013 COSAFA Under-20 Youth Championships. The side had their first official training session on Monday.
In their opening match, South Africa will face Seychelles on Wednesday at the Mafeteng Stadium with kick-off at 2pm.
Amajita have been in camp for over a week where they played a few practice matches to get ready for the event. They defeated neighbours Botswana 2-1 in their last training match before departing for Lesotho.
On their arrival, former Bafana Bafana captain and legend Lucas ÔÇ£RhooÔÇØ Radebe greeted the South African youngsters.
