Banyana best team in Afcon – Safa

Cape Town- SA Football Association (Safa) president Danny Jordaan has hailed Banyana Banyana’s triumphant march to qualify to the Fifa Women’s World Cup.

Jordaan said¬† Banyana’s success was a process of hard work over the past couple years, assisted by all those associated with the domestic game.

Goals from tournament leading scorer Thembi Kgatlana and Lebogang Ramalepe saw SA beat Mali 2-0 in the semifinals of the 2018 African Women’s Championship in Ghana on Tuesday to book a place in next year’s global showpiece in France.

“It was a tremendous effort on the part of the team,” said Jordaan after Banyana also earned a place in Saturday’s Women’s Championship final against Nigeria.

“From the first match and perhaps it was a good to start off against Nigeria. The fact Banyana managed to beat Nigeria gave them a boost.”
