Basestana lost 8-0 on aggregate to Nigeria over two legs thus losing out on the dream of maiden World Cup appearance. Despite this, Khumalo has insisted that the only way for her charges to bounce back is to keep active.

“We have to look past this defeat and ensure that our players remain active and keep playing,” she told Soccer Laduma.

“These disappointments are part of the game but we can dwell on what could have been. It would be ideal that we continue playing as often as possible. This will help our players to refocus,” added Khumalo.
