Amajita's lethal forward George Maluleke has promised to score against Nigeria and help the South African juniors to qualify for the semifinals of the African Youth Championship today.

The match will be played at Kigali Stadium in Rwanda.

Amajita are second in Group B, level with Nigeria on three points. Maluleke, who came on as a substitute in the 1-0 victory over Ivory Coast on Tuesday, conceded that it will not be an easy ride against the junior Super Eagles.

He also hinted that their strength will be in the "play-and- move approach" which he is confident will frustrate their opponents.

"The spirit at the camp is very high, everyone is ready to fight for the three points. I have identified their [Nigeria's] mistakes when they beat Egypt 2-0 on Tuesday, as a result I will capitalise on those mistakes to score," the SuperSport United player told Sowetan yesterday from Rwanda.

Amajita's last group match will be against Egypt on Sunday.
