SA U19 Set To Face Arsenal In Durban U19 Final

South Africa’s U19 national team will face Arsenal FC in the final of the Durban U19 International Football Tournament at King Zwelithini Stadium, on 6 August 2016.

The U19 squad have advanced to the final of the competition after eliminating Portugal’s Sporting Lisbon, while Arsenal defeated TP Mazembe 3-0 at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Thursday to secure their place in the showpiece match.

The two teams will now go head to head on Saturday with the game scheduled to take place at 14:45, and Bafana Bafana’s head coach Shakes Mashaba has expressed his excitement ahead of the fixture.

“Congratulations to the boys who’ve made it to the final of the tournament. The match was not what we expected as we started at a very low key, we should’ve scored in the first half, however we’re closing the gap in the world of football. I think that the only constant thing is change, and initiatives such as the Durban U19 tournament speak to that. I am greatly looking forward to the final,” Mashaba said in a press release.
