The South African senior women’s team have been hard at work in the local Olympic qualifier preparation camp ahead of a two-legged match against Tanzania.

The Sasol-Sponsored Banyana Banyana had a training session on Monday afternoon after assembling for camp in Johannesburg and another session on Tuesday morning ahead of the matches on 23 February (away) and 27 February (home).

Coach Desiree Ellis stressed the importance of the preparation camp with the Hollywoodbets season yet to return to action, and also gave credit to the players for their work ethic.

“Some players have really put on a lot of work. Thank you to the clubs as well for the work that they put in during the pre-season. Yesterday (Monday) was a bit rusty but today (Tuesday) was much better,” said Ellis.

“We are just trying to find that energy and find that connection because it is a group of players that have been together for a while. So it’s not difficult to find that connection.”

The final 23-member squad to play the Olympic qualifier against Tanzania will be announced on Monday, 19 February, 2024.
