Burger King sponsored Amajita (SA u20 men’s national team) reached the semi-finals of the COSAFA Cup u20 tournament with an unblemished record after beating eliminated Botswana 1-0 at Moruleng Stadium on Monday afternoon.
The Thabo Senong youngsters who had already qualified for the penultimate stage after walloping Lesotho 8-0 and Swaziland 1-0 used most of the fringe players in Monday’s rubber match with neighbours Botswana.
Amajita have now scored 10 goals in the group stages, conceded none and are still to lose a match.
Although they initially struggled in Monday’s game against Botswana, they pushed a gear up in the second half in which they missed some gilt-edged chances but once Sibongakonke Mbatha had given them the lead late into the second half, the writing was on the wall with regards to the final outcome.
Speedy winger Sifundo Sibiya made a darting run on the left flank before he squared for Mbatha whose lose shot came off the upright before rolling into an empty net.
Amajita now meet Angola in the semi finals on Wednesday while Zambia play DRCongo in the other semi-final encounter.
The final will take place on Friday to wind off the two week long tournament.
