Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns' under-17 side are set to travel to Japan to take part in the International Challenge Cup in Osaka, Japan.
The side coached by Sundowns legend, Godfrey Sapula, recently won the Gothia Cup in China - a tournament considered to be one of the biggest youth tournaments in the world.
Sundowns' young guns have been invited by the Japan Professional Football League to take part, and will join some major sides from around the region in the competition.
Sapula told the club's official website that his side were ready to compete, "We have been told we will be playing against teams which have won tournaments in the last six months in Japan and Asia.
"So it's going to be a tough call for us this time around but we are confident we will be up to it. The boys must understand that there are big expectations when playing for a big club like Sundowns."
Teams that Sundowns will participate against include Tochigi, FC Tokyo, Matsamoto Yamaga FC, Avispa, Fukuoka, Kyoto Sanga, Cerezo Osaka, Ulsan Hyandai and Foolad Khuzestan. The tournament begins on Saturday in the City of Water.
