Rosina Sedibane Secondary are out to get their 2009 World Schools Soccer Cup campaign back on track at the expense of Slovakia and Poland in Turkey today.

The SuperSport United development school started their tournament on a bad note by losing 1-0 to Turkey in Antalya yesterday.

"We played very well but missed dozens of scoring opportunities," said head of delegation Innocent Sirovha. "We are still hopeful they will make us proud here in Turkey."

"Everybody here has been focusing on our boys because many people here know a lot about soccer in South Africa.

"Our soccer greats like Shoes Moshoeu, Pollen Ndlanya, Helman Mkhalele and Steve Komphela [who have all played for Turkish clubs] are still popular here in Turkey."

The game against Slovakia starts at 8.30am South African time and the match against Poland at 2.30pm.
