Sundowns Academy Three Make U-17 Squad

20/Jul/2016 22:14

Three youngsters from the Mamelodi Sundowns Academy have been included in coach Molefi Ntseki’s squad for the COSAFA Under-17 Championships due to be played in Mauritius at the weekend.

The players are Glen Baadjies, Sphamandla Ntuli, and Mjabulise Mkhize.

The final squad was announced after a pre-tournament camp.

Striker Siphamandla Ntuli, who was the joint top goal-scorer in the Future Champions tournament recently, has shown great potential, scoring six goals in Mamelodi Sundowns’ 11 – 0 thrashing of Ferroviaro Maputo in this tournament, and another five-goal haul in the Gauging Cup.

Participation in the Cosafa tournament is seen as preparation for the youngsters’ U-17 qualifier against Tanzania., scheduled for the weekend of August 5 – 7. They play the second leg of this tournament two weeks later.

They start their Group A campaign at the COSAFA Under-17 Championships against Seychelles in Curepipe on Saturday, followed by games against Namibia and Mauritius on July 27. The top two sides in each pool advance to the semi-finals‚ with the final scheduled for July 31.

    i wish to Welcome Sibusiso Vila Vilakazi to Mamelodi Sundowns Jersey number 15 is officially yours.

  5. Xman says:

    Mabunda is not wearing Number 15 there cant be two numbers from the same team, he can go for number 6 if he is coming because wits are academics not fooballers

  6. Evidence says:

    He must use jerse no12

  7. muzzy says:

    Congratulations to young lads

  8. Sgonondo says:

    Mabunda wears no.13, he only wears no.15 for CCL games. No.12 is retired at Sundowns in honor of Gift Leremi. At the end of the day a jersey no. is just a jersey no., it doesn’t play football.

  9. mrevdolo says:

    The late Gift Leremi was wearing jersey no 7, Villa must wear no 12 that jersey was used by Zane Moosa an Gofrey Sapula who were very players in those days

    • Sgonondo says:

      Leremi wore no.7 at Pirates, at Sundowns he wore no.12. Ask yourself why no one has used no.12 since 2007

      • ndumiso says:

        You are 100 % correct Sgonondo. G Leremi wore jersey no: 12 at Sundowns. As for me anyway I don’t care about a jersey no: I want to see a great performance from him,

  10. Mike says:

    who went to wits on that swap deal.if it’s Ngele only its fine,l would be so unhappy if Mala is also going.Welcome to the yellow family Villa,let’s destroy all that stands on our way to victory. You have joined a team of champions, we have a winning mentality here.

  11. mrevdolo says:

    Sundowns will go for another striker if Mala leaves the team an Laffor can play as a striker if Castro is injured or suspended

  12. fortune says:

    morena and rivaldo left now to sign

  13. Mxo says:

    Great news for masandawana, villa is yello now morena is loading

  14. Sam-4-Downz says:

    Great young boys! Pitso’s scouting network is widening, and i think sooner rather than later we’ll get a sensational troublesome kid from our development. Welcome Villa, and be part of our success story thats’s about to unfold both locally and internationally. A CCL gold medal and a domestic league is what we strife for every season! This season we’re expecting a trible by force this time!

  15. Sam-4-Downz says:

    Regarding signings, lets add Morena, Rusike, Coetzee and Brockie, the close the cheque book.

  16. Evidence says:

    Pitso plz ma coach let Vila be the last SA international 2 sign 4 us. Let us make our own internationals.

  17. mandla weSundowns says:

    Nami ngyakuthanda ke lena ka Villa I think he is coming at the right time when Masandawana are already on a pick also considering that Dolly might leave in January. We might need to work on Brokie should Castro still be uncertain. But for this season no more signing unless Morena is still available
