Desiree Ellis now has all of her players by her side in France as Banyana Banyana go through their final preparations ahead of South Africa’s first ever game at a FIFA Women’s World Cup.

Ellis and the majority of her troops jetted out of Mzansi earlier this week after a big sendoff from SASOL in Sandton, and now it has been confirmed by SAFA that the missing four players – who had club commitments overseas – have now joined up with the team in Rouen.
 
 
A statement on SAFA’s official website said, “The four overseas-based players – Leandra Smeda (Sweden), Ode Fulutudilu (Spain) as well as Nothando Vilakazi and Jermaine Seoposenwe (both Lithuania) – travelled from their clubs to meet up with the rest of their teammates at their pre-World Cup base camp in Rouen.”
 
Banyana will conclude their World Cup preparations with an international friendly against Norway next Sunday at Stade Moulonguet in Amiens, in a game that will be their final game before facing Spain in their opening game on June 8.
 
 
Ellis and her technical team put the players through their paces on Saturday night for the first time since getting all 26 players into camp, and will move to Le Havre to prepare for the Spaniards after their friendly with Norway has been completed.
