Banyana Banyana Star Mthandi Eager for Botswana Friendly

by | Apr 13, 2021

Spain-based striker Amanda Mthandi believes that Banyana Banyana are good enough to beat Botswana, whom they face at Wits University Stadium in Johannesburg on Tuesday, 13 April 2021.

Kickoff is at 15h00.

Mthandi says that she has learnt that if you believe in something, you should go for it – and that is exactly what she did when she got an offer to play in Europe.

Mthandi is back in South Africa and is part of the Sasol-sponsored Banyana Banyana squad that is in camp for two international friendly matches against Zambia and Botswana.

The South Africans have already won the first fixture – coming from behind to defeat Zambia 3-1, with two goals from defender Noko Matlou, while Thembi Kgatlana chipped in with the third.

Mthandi was an unused substitute in the clash against Zambia as she arrived late in camp – she is confident that they will continue where they left off when they play Botswana in a grudge match.

The 24-year-old hasn’t played for Banyana Banyana since November 2019.
