Leshabela joins Amajita squad

23 January 2019 | Sports

Leicester City midfielder Khanya Leshabela has arrived from England to join the South Africa under-20 (Amajita) squad ahead of the upcoming Africa Under-20 Cup of Nations in Niger from February 2 to 17.

A few months ago Leicester handed Leshabela his first senior contract - a deal that runs through until the summer of 2022. At a training camp in White River, Mpumalanga, Leshabela said he felt honoured after receiving his first national junior call-up, adding that coach Thabo Senong played a part in helping him achieve his childhood dream.

The 19-year-old midfielder is part of the u-20 provisional squad of players who will head for Randburg, Gauteng for their pre-competition medical assessment, required by CAF before any player can feature in any of their football tournaments.

The purpose of this test is to identify any potential medical conditions, which might serve as a hindrance for any player to be declared fit to play.

Amajita's 28-man provisional squad will be trimmed down to 21 players ahead of their trip to Niger on Wednesday.

A top-four finish in the continental tournament will see them qualify for the Fifa U-20 World Cup in Poland later this year.
