Bantwana Coach Dludlu Promises Goals In Morocco Clash

Though the South African Women’s U-17 national football team, Bantwana have one foot in the upcoming 2018 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup, head coach Simphiwe Dludlu remains wary of facing their North African counterparts at their home stadium. 

Bantwana are on the verge of qualifying for the World Cup finals scheduled to be played in November in Uruguay. Though Dludlu admitted to having nerves ahead of the second leg qualifier she attributed the nerves to the energy within the players.

“We are not nervous because of we are facing them in Morocco but we are nervous because of the energy in us. Though our hearts are in Uruguay our eyes remain focused on Morocco,” said Dludlu.

“Hard work is the order of the day and when we go to play Morocco we promise to work hard and score,” she added.

Bantwana take a 5-1 lead in the second leg which will be played at the Stade Boubker Aamar in Sale, Morocco on the 17th of February 2018. 

However, despite the impressive lead Bantwana will have to ensure that they maintain their lead or add to their tally without allowing the North Africans to score 4 goals.

The U-17’s will be without attacker Karabo Dlamini who scored two goals in the first leg of the qualifier.

The 2018 Women’s World Cup runs from 3 November to 1 December 2018.
