Amajita coach Thabo Senong has made one change to his starting lineup ahead of their clash against Egypt in the Cosafa U20 Youth Championship.

The South African Men’s U20 National Team will be hoping to finish top of Group B as both teams currently have six points with the same goal difference.

Khulekani Kubheka will start between the sticks for Amajita after keeping a clean sheet in their previous encounter against Mauritius.

Amajita captain Thendo Mukumela will lead the team in the centre of defence alongside Keanu Cupido, while Kamohelo Sambo and Sibusiso Mabiliso will slot in at right and left back.

Thabani Zuke will play as a holding midfield alongside George Matlou and Nkosingiphile Ngcobo in the middle of the park.

Luvuyo Mkatshana moves to right wing while Happy Mashiane returns to the starting lineup retains his spot on the left.

Meanwhile, Lyle Foster will start his first match in attack for Amajita after bagging a brace in their first Group B clash.

The winner of this encounter will qualify for the semi-finals, while the latter stands a good chance of still qualifying as the best loser of the three groups.

The match at the Arthur Davies Stadium kicks off at 15:00.

South African starting XI:

Khulekani Kubheka, Sibusiso Mabiliso, Kamohelo Sambo, Thendo Mukumela, Keanu Cupido, Thabani Zuke, Nkosingiphile Ngcobo, George Matlou, Happy Mashiane, Luvuyo Mkatshana and Lyle Foster.

Substitutions:

Sanele Tshabalala, Renaldo Leaner, Kiyaam Bull, Malebogo Modise, Bradley Cross, Patrick Maswanganyi, Sifundo Sibiya, Katlego Ntshabeleng and Siphumelele Mbulu.
