Bantwana will have their work cut out at the U17 Women's World Cup after being pitted against Brazil and a former World Cup champion ahead of the tournament getting underway in November.

Simphiwe Dludlu’s side will have to negotiate their way around the Brazilians and 2014 champions, Japan, as well as a team from the CONCACAF region if they’re going to make it into the knockouts, something that the coach knows won’t be easy.
 
 
South Africa’s young ladies beat Morocco in the final round of qualifying earlier this year, and Dludlu is expecting a tougher task in the global showpiece.
 
She told SAFA.net, “I would not say it's an easy draw because all the teams that we are grouped with are experienced as they have been there before. If you also look at the CONCACAF teams that still have to qualify, the favourites USA, Mexico and Canada, and don’t forget Haiti because they surprised everyone and qualified for the U20 Women’s World Cup. So this certainly tell you that whichever team we will get from CONCACAF is also not going to be an easy side to play.
 
“The long and short of it is that it is not going to be an easy one. We will be up against the best of the best, which makes it clear (to) us that our planning needs to be very vigorous. It must be the kind of preparation that says we know what we want and must include a lot of friendlies. We need to expose our team to international football as much as we can before the tournament.”
 
The first game of the competition will see Ghana take on the hosts, Uruguay, on November 13th.
