SA Football Association (Safa) president Danny Jordaan strongly believes Banyana Banyana are more than capable of conquering the African continent and world football.
Banyana arrived in the capital city of Lusaka in Zambia on Thursday, ahead of their friendly match against the Copper Queens in preparation for the final round of the Africa Women’s Cup of Nations (AWCON) qualifiers versus Algeria.
South Africa will tackle Zambia on Sunday and welcome Algeria in the first leg on 18 February at home, with the return leg scheduled for 23 February away in Algiers.
“The world of football has proved to us that there is no small team anymore in the world. When I look at this team, I see the talent and a team that has the ability to conquer not only Africa but the world at large,” said Jordaan.
“Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies displayed what South Africa is capable of when they won the inaugural Caf Women’s Champions League.
“When Algeria come to South Africa for the first leg, we must make sure that we hit them very hard to put ourselves in a good place so that we are not under pressure when we play them away,” concluded the Safa president.
Meanwhile, Safa COO Lydia Monyepao, a former Banyana, also added words of motivation for the players.
“You are more than capable of conquering Africa, and you will not only do it for yourselves but for the generations to come,” said Monyepao.
