Cape Town - The South African under-20 football side will conclude their European tour with a match against PEC Zwolle in Amsterdam on Tuesday evening ahead of the team announcement for the world cup in Japan later this month.

The team will be playing their final practice match of the first phase of world cup preparations.

The first two games already played for the duration of the tour ended in a loss and a win respectively.

They lost 1-0 to VFL Bochum of Germany on Saturday in a makeshift game after abortive plans to play with Feyenoord FC and Ajax Amsterdam FC failed.

Amajita bounced back with a 2-0 victory on Monday against a select side from Amsterdam, thanks to goals by Khanyisa Mayo and Kobamelo Kodisang. 

The team is coming back on Thursday and Coach Thabo Senong said he trip was worthwhile despite problems that led to unplanned changes on their opponents.
