Van Wyk: We Are Not Under Pressure

Banyana Banyana will be hoping to pick up their first win of the African Women's Champions when they take on Ghana on Wednesday night.

Banyana will be looking to bounce back from their 1-0 defeat to Cameroon on Saturday and head coach, Vera Pauw, was impressed with the performance despite the loss.

“I am impressed with the team’s performance, we dominated three quarters of the game against Cameroon. They created one chance out of a mistake from our build-up. We have analysed the match and we have been working on fixing what we picked-up from that match,” said Pauw in statement released by SAFA.

Meanwhile, Captain, Janine Van Wyk, believes Wednesday's clash is a do or die encounter and says they have been in a similar situation before.

“We are not under pressure at all, we have the experience in the team to lift ourselves up. We know it is do or die for us, it is going to be a tough battle for us as Ghana is going come out guns blazing. We just have to keep our focus and we can come out with a positive result,” said Van Wyk.

“We have been in the same situation before, in 2012 we lost our first match against Equatorial  Guinea, we are not dropping our heads because we have lost our first game. We know that we have a chance to qualify. We have done it in the past and I don’t see why we cannot do it now."
