Amajita coach, Thabo Senong, says they will have to take it one game at a time at the Council of Southern Africa Football Associations (COSAFA) under-20 Youth Championship 2018 in Zambia.

South Africa, who are the defending champions of the tournament, have booked themselves a place in the semi-finals with a comfortable 4-0 win over Eswatini earlier on Saturday afternoon.

South Africa have established themselves as another dominant side in the COSAFA under-20 tournament.

Amajita have already won the tournament five times and are chasing their sixth title. The hosts Zambia are the most successful side with eleven titles, followed by Zimbabwe with six.

Eswatini held their own against South Africa until they conceded the first goal seven minutes before the break.

Eswatini have never progressed beyond the first round of the tournament and stood little chance to cause an upset after they were thumped 4-0 by Muairitius in their previous match.

South Africa, who finished top of Group B, will now face the best loser of the first round in the semi-finals. The two semi-finals which will be a double header will be staged at Nkana Stadium on Tuesday.
