More than 50 women athletes make the cut in SASCOC’s initial London 2012 Team SA announcement
Mkhonza names strong squad to face Zambia in African Women’s Championship qualifier first leg away match in Lusaka on Saturday
Squad of 24 for the Banyana Banyana training camp in Potchefstroom from 9–18 May 2012 features foreign-based Nompumelelo Nyandeni, Kylie Ann Louw and Roxanne Barker to join the youth brigade of Andile Dlamini, Robyn Moodaly and Lebohang Mabatle.
Banyana Banyana’s second half performance gave much hope to the players, despite going down by three goals to two (3-2) to 2010 World Military Games champions Selecao do Marinha.
Banyana start their tour of Brazil by beating 2011 Copa do Brasil champions and top club side, Zepe de Dugue, 1-0 on Tuesday evening, through an Amanda Dlamini goal in their opening match of their Brazil tour.
Good luck Banyana Banyana, who jet off to Brazil today looking to shine on their 18-day ‘Mission South America’, before competing in the Cyprus Women’s Cup from February 28 to March 6.
