SA Under-20 coach Thabo Senong has announced his final 18-member squad that will travel to Windhoek, Namibia on Thursday afternoon.

Amajita play Namibia at Sam Nujoma Stadium on Saturday in a crucial CAF African Youth championship in which the ultimate winner will meet either Lesotho or Mozambique to decide who qualifies for the finals in Zambia next year.

“We have had a great camp since last Thursday with a pool of 35 players to pick from. We as the technical team have had a good look at all the players especially during the two practice matches we had.

“We released a few players over the weekend and we have had to, unfortunately, release more players this morning based on the performance they displayed in training. We have now chosen the final 18-man squad who will do duty at the weekend and we believe we will get a good result in Windhoek;” said Senong.
