Thirty excited young people were invited to watch the team being put through their paces at an open training session at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.
After the session, they had the opportunity to meet the players who signed autographs and posed for photographs.
Michelle King, from SOS Children South Africa, spoke of the children’s delight: “The children, mothers and staff had a fabulous time,” she smiled.
“Thanks to Manchester City for the hospitality as well as the t-shirts and complimentary tickets. Our children were truly in awe of the team members we were fortunate enough to meet!”
