Amajita coach Thabo Senong has named Liam Jordan and Reeve Frosler in his starting line-up for the crucial U20 World Cup Group D clash against Italy on Wednesday.

The two nations, who both lost their opening games, are set to go head-to-head at the Suwon World Cup Stadium in Suwon, hoping to secure their first points in the group stages.

Amajita goalkeeper Mondli Mpoto has recovered from having the flu and is set to keep his place in goals, while Senong has made only one change in defence.

Reeve Frosler comes in at right back ahead of Thendo Mukumela. Malebogo Modise remains at left back and the duo will be assisted by the central defence pairing of captain Tercious Malepe and Sandile Mthethwa.

Meanwhile, Wiseman Meyiwa and Thabo Cele will continue their partnership in the middle of the park, while Liam Jordan comes in to replace Keletso Makgalwa in attack, along with the trio of Luther Singh, Grant Margeman and Sibongakonke Mbatha.

In the other Group D match, Japan takes on Uruguay in what should be a tightly contested clash after both won their opening fixtures. The winner here will have one foot in the next round.

Amajita starting lineup:

Mondli Mpoto, Reeve Frosler, Malebogo Modise, Tercious Malepe, Sandile Mthethwa, Wiseman Meyiwa, Thabo Cele, Sibongakonke Mbatha, Grant Margeman, Luther Singh and Liam Jordan.

Subs:

Sanele Tshabalala, Khulekani Kubheka, Shane Saralina, Sirgio Kammies, Thendo Mukumela, Sipho Mbule, Kobamelo Kodisang, Masilakhe Phohlongo, Keletso Makgalwa and Teboho Mokoena.
