Banyana Banyana took to the Olympic Stadium in their opening encounter of the Rio Games against Sweden and unfortunately suffered a 1-0 defeat. All is not lost just yet, though, and our loyal fans have been showing their support for our ladies.
"We are improving. No more losing 4 or 5-0. Sweden are one of the best teams. Good luck, next game we will win!" – Mulaudzi jerry
"They will bounce back, I hope." – 303oneman
"They played very well, luck was not on their side. Jermaine Seoposenwe is a gem. Vilakazi did a great job as a left back." – TrevorBaker
"It's not over yet!" – CTM7
With Amaglug-glug taking to the field later today, all hopes will lie on the shoulders of the young men as they bid to bring some smiles to fans of South African football.
