Cape Town - AmaZulu midfielder, Tshepo Liphoko, said the experiences he has had in the Premiership this season contributed significantly to his selection for the South African U20 team set to compete in the Russian Commonwealth tournament later this month.

Liphoko, who will complete his second season at AmaZulu this year, featured prominently during the first half of Usuthu’s domestic campaign and even scored two goals while he was at it.

The teenager now hopes to convert that form into the national Under-20 team and represent his country with distinction during the 10 days of the tournament.

"I am really excited to be called into the national team,” Liphoko told the club’s official website.

“I think every young player dreams of representing the country one day. I am most definitely grateful to AmaZulu for the opportunity to be part of their family."

"I owe it to the senior players, especially Bongani Ndulula, for always encouraging me to do better at all times.

“With the team not doing well, I am hoping that whatever I learn from the national camp I will be able to apply it back to the club," he said.
