Dlangalala To Lead South Africa’s U-16 Team In Poland

Zipho Dlangalala, former coach of Orlando Pirates’ reserve team, has been appointed to lead the South African Under-16 national team as they participate in a four-team tournament in Poland.

This tournament has been organized to give South African youngsters exposure to European football and is part of Safa’s efforts to improve football in the country and achieve their ‘Vision 2030’ goals.

The tournament will feature Poland, Luxembourg, Northern Ireland, and the South African U16 team, and is seen as a crucial opportunity for the development of young South African players.

Walter Steenbok, the Technical Director of Safa, has welcomed the tournament and believes it will play a key role in shaping the future of football in South Africa.

“The game time for this Under-16 team is in line with our Technical Development Plan and the talent pipeline,” said Walter Steenbok, as quoted on the Federation’s website. Steenbok, who is the Technical Director of Safa, believes that this tournament in Poland is an important part of the development process for young South African players.

The South African U16 team is scheduled to leave for Poland on March 25, with their first game taking place two days later against Northern Ireland. They will then face the hosts on March 29 before completing the tournament with a match against Luxembourg.

Safa President Danny Jordaan recently announced that Arsene Wenger, Fifa’s Chief of Global Football Development and a member of the International Football Association Board, will be visiting South Africa to provide advice on how to improve the game.

With the tournament fast approaching, former Orlando Pirates coach Zipho Dlangalala, who will be assisted by Mandla Mathaba, must focus on preparing his players to achieve positive results in Poland.
