The National U17 Men’s Football team, Amajimbos fired 17 goals past Golden Arrows in a friendly practice match at UKZN Howard Collage in Durban on Wednesday morning but Coach Molefi Ntseki insists that the score line was not the objective of the day.
“We would like to thank Golden Arrows for giving us the opportunity to play against them as the match gave us an opportunity to see how the boys are progressing. Yes we scored 17 goals but the objective of the match was not the goals, we needed to access that the boys understand the drills we have been working on during this camp. Going to the World Cup demands us to follow global trends as the level of competitiveness will be extremely high.
“Our players are very talented that is a fact, South Africa is very gifted when it comes to players but what we are working on now is the tactical awareness of the game, things like movement in possession, movement out of possession in defense and the midfield, and I believe what the boys displayed in these areas today was positive,” said Ntseki.
Amajimbos continues their World Cup preparations in Durban for the next few day and will play their last friendly practice match on Saturday 11 July 2015 against the Hoy Park U19 Academy, time and venue will be communicated in due cause.
