Majimbos are hoping for a dream start in the seventh African Under-17 Championships against hosts Togo at the Kegue Stadium in Lome tomorrow.

"First impressions last longer, we are going for the kill on Saturday," said Serame "Rhee" Letsoaka, coach of the South African Under-17 national side.

"It is common knowledge that it's always tense in the opening matches of major competitions, but we have advised our players to calm down.

"We are fortunate that several members of our team are already playing in the professional ranks; the international games that we have played helped us a lot.

"Togo are a closed book, but we have done our homework. Our plan is to finish the first round without dropping a single point.

"I must confess it won't be easy, but we are ready for the fight," said Letsoaka.

Majimbos are making their second consecutive appearance in the biennial continental championships after finishing fourth in Gambia in 2005.

They lost 1-0 to Ivory Coast in a playoff for third place, the last qualifying spot for the World Junior Championships.

But the organisers have changed the rules this time round, with the semifinalists automatically qualifying for the World Junior Championships in August.

"We are aiming for a gold medal," said assistant coach Solly Luvhengo.

South Africa will bank on youngsters like Thulane Serero, Thulane Ngcepe, Dylon "Alarm" Claasen and Ramahlwe Mphahlele
