Amajita conceded a goal late in the second half just a few minutes after substitute goalkeeper Sibongiseni Mkhize had saved a penalty.
“The preparations are going well. We had three training sessions and a practice match against a local select side. The match was very good. The opposition was physically strong and a very experienced group of players. We were happy with the performance of our players especially in the first half.
“We then had to rotate the team around just to give everybody a run and the objective was evaluation and assessment. We are happy that we have identified the possible squad to take to Senegal, and it does not mean other players are not good enough but it is more about experience and mental toughness to play this international tournament,” said Senong.
The South Africans are in the coastal city as part of preparations for the upcoming 19th edition of the CAF African Youth Championship, which will be played in Senegal from 8-22 March 2015.
