Enyimba International FC's coach, John Kalula, has warned their South African counterparts that they are not in the country on holiday but to lift the SuperSport Under-19 Cup.

The prestigious tournament starts tomorrow at the Pimville-Klipspruit Development Centre in Soweto with the finals scheduled for Sunday.

Speaking to Sowetan yesterday, Kalula said: "We are not here to add to numbers but to win the tournament in our debut."

Tomorrow Enyimba take on Moroka Swallows in their opening clash at 11.20pm.

Swallows' coach Joel "Ace'' Mnini said their preparations for the tournament had gone well.

"My boys are in a good frame of mind and ready to do the talking on the field,'' said Mnini.

Mnini's son, Fuzile, will also be paraded with fellow midfielders Meshack Shezi and national Under-17 player Thato Ferland.

Other matches tomorrow: Mamelodi Sundowns v Soweto Select XI (9am); Platinum Stars v Bidvest Wits (10.10am); Bloemfontein Celtic v Rangers International FC (12.30pm); Sundowns v Ajax Cape Town (2pm); Wits v AmaZulu (3.10pm); Cosmos v Swallows (4.20pm); Kaizer Chiefs v De Beers (5.30pm).
