Majimbos will go for broke when they take on Zimbabwe in the 2007 African Under-17 Championships qualifier at Katlehong Stadium tomorrow.

"We need to score at least two goals without conceding," said coach Serame Letsoaka after a 3-1 win over Vodacom League side Soweto Panthers on Wednesday.

"It is important to do well because we are playing at home, that will help to ease the pressure when we travel to Harare for the return match."

The South African under-17 national soccer side qualified for the second round after beating Botswana 9-1 on aggregate last month.

On the other hand, Zimbabwe - who were defeated 3-1 during the sixth edition of the tournament in Gambia last year - beat Reunion 4-2.

Majimbos have an array of classy youngsters such as Thulane Serero, Ramahlwe Mphahlele, Kermit Erasmus and Mzuvele Skhosana to make South Africans happy.

Admission is free.

Other fixtures scheduled for tomorrow (with the host country appearing first):

Tunisia v Senegal, Gabon v Central African Republic, Eritrea v Zambia, Ivory Coast v Ghana, Nigeria v Morocco and Mali v Burkina Faso.
