Pauw Expresses Her Disappointment

Banyana Banyana coach, Vera Pauw, expressed her disappointment following Comoros' withdrawal to return for the second leg of the African Women’s Championships qualifiers next weekend.

The women’s national team thrashed Comoros 13-0 a week ago during the first leg of the qualifiers in Comoros. The win and the withdrawal automatically gives her team a spot in the AWC to be held in October in Namibia this year.

Speaking to the crew, Pauw said they’re happy as a team because their aim was to qualify.

“Of course we’re happy considering the fact that we wanted to qualify for the championships. It’s unfortunate that Comoros are not coming to return the game. We were hoping they will come and we would measure our progress in that match but it’s not happening. We now have to find an opponent for that weekend, it’s terrible because it’s short notice but we’re hoping to get a friendly game."

“That’s so disappointing when looking at African football, this was the chance to develop and grow their football. Any team has to play competitive games in order to grow and develop in football. My players played very well to get that 13-0 result, it was massive and credit goes to the players."

"We have many creative players and we’re able to create chances, I was happy to finally us taking them. That was the biggest win for this team. We played Ghana and Zimbabwe, we talked about a lot of things in relation to our game and finally that came through against Comoros. First it was to qualify for the AWC and secondly the World Cup in Canada and we’re a step closer to it. The World Cup is the platform where we belong and we need to work towards that,” said Pauw.
