South Africa Coach Letsoaka has vowed to maintain his team's winning plan when the Amajita Stars face Ghana in the semi-finals of the African Youth Championships tomorrow at Amahoro stadium.

Serame said yesterday that his side must maintain the same game plan despite facing rich-football Ghana in today's tough tie.

"Ghana is a big footballing nation and this semi-final clash will not be an easy go-through but I'm hopeful," Serame said, adding that his boys are fit and ready for the challenge.

South Africa set up a mouth-watering semifinal meeting against Ghana after making the last four of the African Youth Championships by the narrowest of margins on Sunday.

The Amajita lost 1-2 to 2009 World Youth Cup host Egypt but qualified ahead of the North Africans on goal difference to finish second in Group B.

Serame's side conceded two first half goals from Egypt's Mohammed Talaat but were rewarded for their sleek game when Thulane Ngcepe pulled one back for them on the 70th minute.

Nigeria will come up against Cameroon in the other semi-final.
