Golden Eaglets suffer Amajimbos defeat

26 February 2015, 12:19

Niamey - The South African National Under-17, the Amajimbos, sailed into the final of the 2015 Caf U-17 Championships with a 1-0 win over Nigeria in the Niger capital of Niamey on Wednesday, SuperSport reports.

It was a solid performance from the South Africans who are now 90 minutes away from being crowned African junior champions.

The Amajimbos continued to search for the opening goal, they went into the attack on the 26th minute resulting in Mayo sweeping home the crucial goal.

Nigeria came back a rejuvenated side in the second half pushing for the elusive equaliser but a combination of good goalkeeping from Mondli Mpoto and tight defence put paid to any of their chances pulling things back.
