The national Under-17 side travel to Tanzania today for the second leg of the African Youth Championships (AYC) qualifiers.

Molefi Ntseki’s young men played to a one-all draw with Tanzania in the first leg which took place at the Dobsinville Stadium. The do-or-die match will take place at the Dar es Salaam on Sunday.

The two teams played to a 1-1 draw in the first leg that took place at Dobsonville two weeks ago. Should Amajimbos win the match, they will take a step closer to qualifying as they will face the winner between Congo or Namibia, to battle for a spot in the AYC which will be held in Madagascar early next year.

Ntseki retained most of the squad that finished second in the Council of Southern Africa Football Associations Under-17 tournament.
