After three days of training and acclimatisation in the Netherlands, the South African Senior Women’s team will finally be put to the test against Netherlands on Tuesday 12 April, at the Ado Den Haang Stadium.
The players share the same mentality and drive ahead of the game, and they communicated their intentions to www.safa.net as the countdown to this encounter continues.
Defender Bambanani Mbane believes that the International Friendly will be one of the biggest tests ahead of the coming African Women’s Cup of Nations in Morocco.
“Mentally we have to be strong heading into this game against such a team, but I am happy with how we have performed leading up to this. The team spirit is high.” said Mbane.
“We need games like these to measure how far we are in terms of preparation as a team, where we can improve and also help each other with improving.”
This will be the third meeting between the two sides, with Orange winning 2-0 in 2016 and 2-1 in 2019.
The game will be LIVE on the SABC Sport Channel on DTT, Openview 124 and will also be available on TelkomONE at 18:00pm.
