Speaking to the South African Football Association, the Banyana goalkeeper has shared her feelings ahead of the competition.

“It’s honestly a great achievement, things people dream about, we always talk about the U17 World Cup and how young we were and didn’t have the moment for it to sink in,” she said.

“We are in France and we’ve got to live every moment and enjoy the ride.”

“We are at single digits and once it gets to the countdown from 3, that is when the nerves are going to kick in. The pressure is building and we all want to play. It’s pretty exciting (but) we do still have some things to work on.”

“2019 is going to be a big year. Women’s football is on the rise and the game has changed so much. You can’t deny the talent that every country has,” she added.

Banyana will take on Norway in their last preparation match on June 02.
