Cape Town - Thabo Senong admits that the Under-20 national side are in a rebuilding phase as they construct a team which can compete globally.

The Amajimbos mentor said that they are in the process of building a new team that will play in the African Youth Championship qualifiers next year in April and that the Durban Under-19 football tournament was the best platform to prepare the players.

“This is a rebuilding phase for our U20 National Team,” the coach told SAFA website.

“We are building a new team that will play in the African Youth Championship qualifiers next year in April, and for me this was the best platform to prepare the team and build a base.

“We are very happy that these boys have responded very well to the challenge.

“These are the boys who were identified in the SAFA Interprovincial Tournament held in Bloemfontein last year, and hopefully we will get more players in the second Interprovincial Tournament next month in the North West Province and reinforce the squad, make it an even better team,” Senong said in conclusion.
