Aces'Junior Nare came off the bench and scored two 2nd half goals for SA U17 Mens National Team (Amajimbos) but they lost 3-2 to Zambia in their second match of Group B in the 2017 COSAFA U-17 Championships.

A first half goal from Andrew Phiri and a brace by Lameck Banda ensured that Zambia stay top of the group. South Africa put up a great fight and managed to score two goals in the last ten minutes of the match, but ran out of time in search of the equalizer.

A brace from substitute Junior Nare brought the stadium to life as he netted in the crucial goals in the 81st and 87th minute respectively. Amajimbos managed to regroup and take pride in the lesson learnt today and coach Molefi Ntseki believes that the player truly showed hunger today.

I want to commend my players for coming back after the halftime result. I believe that they lost confidence after that first goal but we manage to come back.

These players are just 15 years old and they really did their best under the circumstances. It was a thrilling last 10 minutes and it is unfortunate that we did not get an equalizer but we are very proud of the boys.

We as the technical team managed to bring back their confidence at the break and it show in the second half;” said Head Coach Molefi Ntseki.

South Africa now have 4 points in the tournament and will face Madagascar in their last group stage match on Tuesday, 25 July 2017. This match will be played at 15h00 local time (SA time 13h00), at Saint Francois Xavier Stadium.
