South Africa Under-20 beat Orlando Pirates reserve team 2-0 in a friendly game which was played at the Dobsonville Stadium in Johannesburg on Wednesday.

Amajita head coach Thabo Senong was pleased with his charges' performance as they completed their preparations for the 2017 U20 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) finals.

"This was a great match. As usual, we always get a strong challenge against Orlando Pirates," Senong said on

"I am happy that we have addressed the issues we had against Zambia and Mali. The boys defended set pieces very well," he continued.

"We managed to create and score goals, as well as maintain the same tempo in both halves.

"I believe that we are ready for our first match and that the level of confidence in the players is where we want it to be."

This year's U20 AFCON finals will be hosted by Zambia between 26 February - 12 March. South Africa are in Group B along with Cameroon, Senegal and Sudan.
