Banyana jet out for Ghana on Friday


Kick off is at 18h00 local time.

Banyana must win this second leg qualifier if they are to have any chance of going to Beijing. The South African girls narrowly lost the first leg at home 1-0.

The team has been bolstered by the return of stalwart defender Janine van Wyk, who was out of the first leg with a serious knee injury.

Van Wyk has recently been signed by Fortuna Hjorring in Denmark and will join Portia Modise there in January.

Modise has also returned for this vital clash.

Three of the national Under-20 players who performed so well against the world champions Germany recently, have also been called into the squad.

They are defender Merry Ntsweng, midfield/defender Nothando Vilakazi and goalkeeper, Mandy de Arouja.

“This is a crucial game for us and the team is preparing hard for a victory,” says head coach Augustine Makalakalane.
