South Africa FA President backs Amajinbos to beat Ghana

Published on: 01 December 2012

South Africa FA President Kirsten Nemantandani is expecting the national U-17 side to beat Ghana on Saturday.

The Amajinbos must overturn a 3-2 deficit suffered in the own backyard a fortnight ago to pip the Black Starlets to qualify for next year’s Africa U-17 Championships.

The task of beating Ghana in the return leg considering the first game’s result looks daunting but Nematandani draws inspiration from similar happenings in the past.

“Of course we told them to go out there and do what Ghana did here,”he told Angel FM.

“We told them it is possible. It is not strange that a team will lose at home and go and win away, it has happened.”

The match will be played at the Sekondi Essipong Stadium on Saturday.

The aggregate winner of the tie will qualify for the championships which will be hosted in Morocco next year.

    Mr Ghanaman Talk is cheap!!.At first All Other Africa countries thot Zambia WON the AFCON by sheer Luck.But we have all watched Zambia continiue to beat the so called Black Stars even after the AFCON .I think Ghana has LOST almost 3 times to the CURRENT AFRICAN CHAMPIONS.So to me that is proof enough that they are CHAMPIONS.They again recently WON the MANDELA CUP beating SOUTH AFRICA at their home ground...does that not RING a BELL in your head that THIS TEAM is not a FLUKE..wake up!!We shall see again!next year.Zambia BURIED ALL the WEST AFRICAN giants at once at the AFCON 2012..starting with the much fancied SENEGAL,GHANA and then LASTLY Ivory Coast.I watched these games live!!.And u can not tell me anythin!.That is why teams LIKE CONGO think they are also able to beat Ghana.Ghana is beatable both at HOME and AWAY....reason they have nothing new to offer to the Soccer fratenity.Every African team want to beat these so called favourites...i mean Ivory Coast,Ghana etc.Watch the Games NEXT year 2013 there are NO UNDER DOGS..Everybody is EQUAL!!

    mr. nemata just waste your emotions on something profitable before you get a heart attack. WHAT! YOU THINK YOU CAN BEAT THESE JUNIOR BLACK STARS IN GHANA? hahahaa. LAUGHABLE. some of these african countries still dont know their limits when it comes to African soccer, we have taught them so many lessons but they still fail the exam.
