"We will not be intimidated by our opponents because we are physically and psychologically ready for the event. We will go there for nothing less than a gold medal.

"The boys have vowed to bring home the trophy. We will continue with friendly matches to ensure that they remain in good shape until the tournament."

Themba Tshabalala, South African Schools Football Association (Sasfa's) director of competitions said they are confident that Rosina Sedibane will do the country proud in Turkey.
