JOHANNESBURG – Down but definitely not out. That is the feeling in the Amajita camp following their 5-2 defeat to Argentina in their opening match of the Under-20 World Cup.
With two matches still to play in the group stages, Thabo Senong’s team are confident they can recover from the loss to get enough points that will see them progress to the next round.They play South Korea today and complete their group phase with a clash against Portugal.
Midfielder Leo Thethani says they can win both matches.
“I believe that we’ll get the six points because of the way we’ve been working and doing the analysis,” Thethani said.
“I think we’ll give the two opponents - Korea and Portugal - a tough game because we are confident. We want to show to our nation that we are capable of doing anything and achieving anything that we want to.”
