The South African U17 Women’s National Team Head Coach Nthabeleng ‘Dunga’ Modiko believes that the junior women’s national team can also add pride to the South African flag and inspire the nation, when they face Ethiopia U17 at the Lucas Moripe Stadium in Atteridgeville, Pretoria, on Sunday, 11 February, 2024.

Speaking to www.safa.net, Modiko said her charges will do their utmost best to overturn the 3-0 first leg deficit in last weekend’s 2024 FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup qualifying match.

Bantwana will need to put four goals past the Ethiopians and not concede, in order to progress to the next round of world cup qualifiers of the junior women’s tournament, to be staged by the Dominican Islands later this year.

The second leg match will be played at Lucas Moripe Stadium and kicks off at 15h00 (CAT), and the match will be live-streamed on the SAFA Facebook page.
