Amajimbos head north on key qualifying campaign
- Updated: September 22, 2014
Amajimbos coach Molefi Ntseki is confident his Under-17 side will come away from Egypt with a win as his squad aims to become the third straight South African side to qualify for a major continental football tournament.
The U17 outfit take on their Egyptian counterparts in a second leg of the CAF African Youth qualifier, carrying a 2-1 lead from the first leg which was played at Royal Bafokeng Stadium last week.
‘We are not going there to defend the 2-1 advantage. That would be precarious. We are going to take the fight to the Egyptians and look for an outright victory and join Banyana Banyana and Amajita in qualifying for the African championships.
‘If that happens, we will have completed a good period for South African football. We want to maintain the momentum of all teams qualifying for major tournaments as part of fulfilling the 2022 Vision and I believe we have what it takes,” said Ntseki.
Amajimbos leave for Egypt on Wednesday evening and play Egypt on Saturday at the Contractor Stadium in Cairo.
They return home the following day.
