AFTER an unbeaten run in the Four Nations Cup in Bulgaria, national Under-23 soccer team Amajita are fired up for another four-team event in Korea.

The tournament, which kicks off on Sunday, will also feature hosts Korea, Japan and Egypt. It is part of the participants' preparations for the Fifa World Youth Championship in Cairo in September.

Amajita assistant coach Maqsood Chenia praised his charges for their brave display in Bulgaria.

"They showed a lot of composure and improvement in all departments and we are justifiably excited about their general performance," Chenia ,. "The tournament enabled us to discover Tawfeeq Salie's potential in the poles.

"We are confident that the boys will do even better in the next tournament as we round off preparations for the Egypt tournament in September.

"Some of the players will be rested for the Korea tournament while others like Kermit Erasmus, Dylon Claasen and Thulane Serero, will be considered. These players missed the Bulgaria tournament because they were not available."

Amajita drew 1-1 with Georgia in their opening match in Bulgaria, but went on to beat Zimbabwe 2-0 before they played to a goalless draw against Bulgaria in the last match on Sunday.
