ANGOLA NAME SQUAD FOR COSAFA MEN’S UNDER-17 CHAMPIONSHIP DEFENCE

Angola coach Jose Jorge has selected a very young squad to defend their COSAFA Men’s Under-17 Championship title in Blantyre, Malawi from October 11-20, with the majority of last year’s group preparing for the FIFA Under-17 World Cup in Brazil.

It means a totally new selection for the Angolans, which includes the likes of forward Denilson Makokisa and midfielder Antonio Lopes, who are both just 13, and defender Domingos Mendes, who has only recently turned 14.

This will be their introduction to international football and Angola are likely already thinking ahead to the following global finals in this age-group in 2021 as they seek to develop players for that competition.
