A single late goal from Raissa Feudjio was enough to sink Vera Pauw’s team and end the Dutch coach’s 10-game unbeaten streak since taking over the South African women’s national team.

Van Wyk, who led the team out against the Indomitable Lionesses, told the SAFA website that they have no intention of letting the defeat get them down.

She said, “We are very disappointed about the result, we wanted to go out and get a good result by winning, but this does not give us a reason to put our heads down. We have two games left and that will make us even stronger. We know that we have to win them. I believe we have the team capacity to bounce back. We played very well, it was only one small mistake and they got the goal. We have a lot of experience to lift ourselves.

 “We have two games to go, we have to lift our heads because we are not a team to give up. We still have two chances to make it through to the world cup and we have to be strong and focus on our next step which is Ghana.”
