Bantwana Through to Next Round of U17 World Cup Qualifiers

by | Feb 28, 2022

The South African U17 National Women’s Team (Bantwana) are through to the next round of the 2022 FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup qualifiers after opponents Kenya were suspended by the world football governing body, FIFA.

Bantwana had reported for camp on Thursday, 24 February, but will now progress to the round following FIFA’s decision to ban both Kenya and Zimbabwe, citing interference from the two countries’ respective governments.

Bantwana will however continue with their camp as coach Simphiwe Dludlu said they were looking to build a team that will actively participate in the next round of qualifiers and ultimately qualify for the FIFA World Cup scheduled for October 2022 in India.

“We have received notification of the suspension of Kenya but we will remain active and in camp as we look forward to building a formidable side that must qualify for the World Cup,” concluded Dludlu.
