DURBAN – Banyana Banyana will be hoping to put the final stamp on their preparations for the Women’s World Cup when they take on Jamaica in an international friendly in Durban on Sunday.
The 3pm clash at Moses Mabhida Stadium is Banyana’s final fixture on home soil before they head to the Women’s World Cup to be held in France in June and July.
“We are very excited to be in Durban, this is part of our World Cup preparations,” said Banyana coach Desiree Ellis.
“This is also a different type of game and an important one at that, as each and every match prepares you for the next one.
“The players are excited as it is 67 days away from the World Cup and it is getting closer and closer. Even though we have not been together, players have been training as we have given them programmes, and some have been playing matches and also tournaments. We will prepare well for the Sunday match as it is a farewell match, and we will put up a good showing.”
