Bantwana On Track For BRICS Tournament

South Africa’s U-17 women’s national football team Bantwana are on track in the BRICS Tournament after registering a 5-1 victory over India in the opening encounter of the competition currently being played in Gauteng.

Goals by Zethembiso Vilakazi, Miche Minnies, Karabo Dhlamini, Khunjolwa Mali and Thubelihle Shamase have put Bantwana firmly on the leader’s board as the team prepares to take on Brazil in today’s match. 

Bantwana have had a successful spell under the leadership of former Banyana Banyana captain, Simphiwe Dludlu who has helped the junior national team qualify for the 2018 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup in Uruguay later this year.

“The BRICS Tournament is vital in helping our national team prepare for the World Cup which is later this year,” said SAFA’s Communication man Dominic Chimhavi.

“As you know it’s often difficult to get the players playing competitive international football at this level. The coach has done extremely well and we believe that this tournament is perfect in allowing our players to be exposed to other teams from different countries,” he added.

Dludlu charges face Brazil at the Wits Rugby Stadium with the game scheduled to start at 16h30.
