S.A U23 team coach targets victory over Young Warriors

South Africa nation U23 team coach David Notoane is targeting a win over the Young Warriors and qualify for the Afcon finals later this year.

In an interview with SAFA media, the gaffer said: “We are looking forward to the next round of qualifiers (against Zimbabwe) and are very eager to qualify for our second consecutive Olympic Games as a country.

“The U-23 Men’s National Team is a great stepping stone for players to either grow in their current teams or be advertised at an international level.”

South Africa beat Angola 6-1 on aggregate in the first round of the qualifiers to book a date against Zimbabwe in the final stage of the qualifiers and the first leg is set for June 5 at home while the return fixture is in Harare four days later.

The winner of the tie will qualify for the 8-Nation tournament in Egypt in which top three teams in the continental showpiece will qualify for the 2020 Olympic Games to be staged in Tokyo, Japan.
