MAJIMBOS coach Solly Luvhengo has set his sights on qualifying for their third African Under-17 Championships finals in Rwanda in four successive tournaments.

This after the SA Under-17 side got their 2011 African Under-17 Championships qualifiers off to a flying starts with a 3-0 win over Namibia in Windhoek on Sunday.

Kaizer Chiefs duo of Maselaelo Seango (brace) and Thabani Mthembu grabbed the two goals for the more experienced South African neighbours.

South Africa now have a good chance to book themselves a place in the second round after scoring three away goals. The two sides will meet in Kimberley in a fortnight's time.

"First impressions last longer, I must say I was impressed by the level of commitment and enthusiasm by Majimbos throughout the match," said Luvhengo.

"We are geared up for the return match in two weeks time here at home, we are going to finish the Namibians off in that match.

"South Africa is hosting the 2010 Fifa World Cup in June, the focus is on South Africa. So we are under tremendous pressure to go all the way to Rwanda."
