SAFA announces Banyana Banyana squad to play USA in an international friendly match

Sasol-sponsored Banyana Banyana will play against the USA in two international friendly matches on 21 September and 24 September. Coach Desiree Ellis announced the squad that will play at this encounter on Wednesday, 6 September. 

Banyana Banyana made history at the recently held World Cup by becoming the first-ever senior national team (men or women) to make it out of the group stages. This accomplishment resulted in the team climbing up the ranks from 54 to 45 in the latest FIFA rankings.

Congratulations to all the players who received the nod from the technical team and were called up by the coach for this assignment, said Nozipho Mbatha, Sasol Senior Manager: Group Brand and Sponsorship. “Being entrusted with such a responsibility to represent South Africa after Banyana Banyana’s sterling performance in Australia and New Zealand, will bolster each player’s commitment to continue on the trajectory of high performance, inspiring those that follow in their footsteps to dream big, knowing nothing is impossible that which they put their mind to. Banyana Banyana has proven to everyone that consistent hard work contributes towards success. On behalf of Sasol, we wish them all the best.
