Banyana Banyana will face Zimbabwe on Saturday in their opening encounter of the Africa Women Cup Of Nations tournament in Cameroon, and the team’s vice captain, Refiloe Jane wants to bring home gold.
The South African women’s national football team's opening fixture is against neighbours, Zimbabwe, and is scheduled to take place on Saturday, 19 November, at the Stade de Yaounde in the capital of Cameroon.
The team’s vice-captain has mentioned that Banyana owes it to South Africa to bring home the champions’ medal.
"This is my third Women’s Championships and I believe this trophy has eluded us for far too long. We have a good group of experience and youth within the team and I believe that the experience we gained during the 2016 Rio Olympics will assist us during this tournament," Jane said, according to SAFA's official website.
"Two years ago in Namibia we failed to finish in the top three, so we believe we owe it to the nation and ourselves to make an impact this time round. We believe in ourselves and the technical team’s approach to matches and we will need to dig deep to ensure we reach our objective.”
