In one of these Tweets, Amajita captain Khulekani Kubheka speaks to the nation about how grateful he is for their support. You can watch the video below.
Amajimbos head coach Molefi Ntseki and Banyana Banyana coach Desiree Ellis spoke to Safa about Amajita's success.“Having been down this road before, I know exactly how coach Senong and his troops are feeling at the moment – they feel on top of the world and they should because they deserve it. It is no easy task to qualify for a tournament of this magnitude especially playing against top class opposition like your Nigeria, Senegal, Mali and the rest – but coach Thabo has done well and we are extremely proud of him,” said Ntseki.
“It is not everyday that as a country we qualify for the World Cup, but in recent times we have seen this happening on a regular basis, which shows we are doing something right. Congratulations once again to coach Thabo and all the best in their remaining matches in Niger, I have a feeling that with this qualification out of the way, they could bring back gold.”Ellis recently qualified Banyana Banyana for their first World Cup, which takes place in June in France.
“A job well done by coach Thabo with his consecutive World Cup qualification. What is even more exciting is that it has been a fantastic couple of months with Bantwana, Banyana Banyana and now Amajita qualifying for their respective World Cups. This is a huge achievement for South African football and one we can really be proud of as a nation,” said Ellis to Safa.
“A big thank you to SAFA for all the support they have given to the teams to reach this pinnacle. Gratitude should also go to our proud sponsors Sasol and Burger King for being there when needed. Not forgetting millions of fans who have been behind these teams and helped us over the line, without them we could not have achieved this.”

Youth Coaches get to be criticized a lot without enough support and when we thrive through it all it must be a big celebration. Congratulations to #Amajita and @ThaboSenong, the hard work and hours of commitment paid off.— Simphiwe (@Simphiwe_Dludlu) February 9, 2019
