Banyana Captain: We Won’t Walk Away Without Putting Up A Great Fight

The South African women’s national team qualified for the 2019 Women’s FIFA World Cup for the first time, with Banyana Banyana captain, Janine van Wyk emotional after last night’s victory against Mali.

Banyana booked their spot in the final for the Africa Women’s Cup Of Nations last night, which saw them automatically qualify for the FIFA World Cup that’s set to take place in France next year.

Speaking after the game, Van Wyk, who captains the national team, revealed that after the campaign they’ve had, her side has what it takes to go all the way and win the AWCON competition.

“It’s a very special group and of course we made history and I’m so excited about it and every time we step on to the field, we set small targets for ourselves and our first target was to get top of the table in our group, which is what we did. Our next target was obviously qualifying for the World Cup, which is what we did and now obviously our next target would be lifting that trophy and getting that gold medal around our necks and it is something that we are capable of doing,” Van Wyk said after the game.

“I honestly believe that we can go all the way and its just been a long journey for us, for coach Desiree, for me as a captain, as a leader of the team, a player that has been here for long but I’m not the only one, there’s a lot of players who have been here forever. 

“We are not going to walk away from this tournament without putting up a great fight in our last game, last 90 minutes to perhaps lift that trophy,” she added.
