“It's an opportunity I have been dreaming of and working hard for throughout my career. It has certainly come at the perfect moment. I know I will go there with tons of experience, which gives me the confidence to know I will fit in well with this team. They were in need of a central defender with leadership qualities and I guess I fit the bill, and that's one of my strengths as a player,” Van Wyk said in a SAFA press-release.

“I am looking forward to go and represent not only South Africa but the whole of Africa with pride. It's time people out there notice how good and talented African footballers really are.”

“I want to thank everyone who has contributed to my success - coaches, teammates, friends and family for pushing me beyond my limits and believing in the athlete I am. I will go out there and SHINE for you," she added.
