The South African Senior Women’s National Team beat a 10-women Senegal 2-0 in the second international friendly matches at Stade Lat Dior in Thies, Senegal, on Wednesday, 4 June, 2024.

Amogelang Motau opened the scoring with a beautiful free kick in the 13th minute of the match, and Noxolo Cesane doubled the Sasol-sponsored team’s lead in the 43rd minutes.

Head coach Desiree Ellis made changes at halftime, bringing in Linda Motlhalo for Kholosa Biyana and Sibulele Holweni for Amogelang Motau, while Senegal also made four changes to try to change the shape of the game.

Thubelihle Shamase came on for Noxolo Cesane in the 62nd minute of the match.

Banyana continued to dominate the attack and the pressure forced the Senegalese to revert to a physical pattern, which earned Sylla Coumba a red card in the 67th, after dangerous play lead to an injury to goalkeeper, Kaylin Swart.

Swart was later substituted in the 72nd minute by Kebotseng Moletsane who earned her 4th official Banyana Banyana cap, when the starting choice could not continue with the match.

Lebogang Ramalepe and Asanda Hadebe were also replaced by Karabo Dhlamini and Mating Nokoane in the 75th minute of the match.

“We played to our strengths today after looking at our errors in the first match, and that is how we managed to dominate the entire match,” said Ellis.

“We are happy with the performance we saw today, and will continue to build on it.”
