Former South African National u20 head coach and SAFA Technical Director Serame Letsoaka paid Amajita a visit on Thursday morning ahead of their trip to Zambia for their first international friendly match, to share some of his experiences with the players.
Letsoaka still holds the record of qualifying the national u20 team for their first ever FIFA U20 World Cup back in 2009 in Egypt.
He said he felt it necessary to enlighten the players on how important the upcoming CAF U20 African Cup of Nation is and what qualifying for the 2017 Edition would do to them and the country as a whole.
“You are a privileged bunch of players, but privilege comes with accountability. You are a group of players who have the ability to write your names in history books. Those that came before you can attest to this as playing at this level will change your lives for the better,” said Letsoaka.
Amajita travel to Lusaka, Zambia tomorrow morning to play an international friendly match to be played on Sunday, 12 February 2017 at 15h00.
The team will then make its’ way back to South Africa on Monday, 13 February 2017 and conclude their preparations in Polokwane, Limpopo where they will host the Eagles of Mali in two international friendly matches on 16 and 19 February.
They then head to Ndola, Zambia ahead of the CAF U20 AFCON tournament which kick off on 26 February 2017.
