Johannesburg - The South Africa Under-20 team, Amajita, sailed into the quarterfinals of the Commonwealth Cup taking place St Petersburg, Russia, on Tuesday.

Despite playing to a goalless draw against Kazakhstan, the South Africans had Kazakhstan on the back foot for most of the first half.

Dumisani Msibi started in goals and looked solid as were the defensive pair of captain Motjeka Madisha and Maphosa Modiba who snuffed out any threats from the opposition.

In midfield, Tlotlo Leepile and Pule Maraisane created space for Tshidiso Monamodi and Siyanda Ngubo. However, the tall Kazakhstan players easily thwarted any chances of a goal. The quarterfinals take place on Thursday and Amajita will only know their opponents once all the group matches are completed.

In earlier group games, Amajita drew 1-1 with Lithuania before punishing Tajikistan 3-1.
