Banyana register back-to-back wins


Banyana Banyana comfortably beat Cosafa rivals Botswana 2-0 to make it two wins in a row at the Wits University Stadium in Johannesburg on Tuesday, afternoon.

This was Banyana’s second international friendly match in three days as on Saturday they came from behind to defeat Zambia 3-1 at the same venue.

With nothing to write home about in a tightly-contested first half, the hosts started the brighter of the two in the second stanza.

And they were rewarded for their relentless attacks when striker Thembi Kgatlana slammed one home in the 51st minute – she was denied by the evergreen Botswana goalkeeper, Sedilame Bosija, from a certain goal a minute earlier.

Five minutes later, Gabriela Salgado found herself in the box and beat one defender before sliding the ball past the goalkeeper from a very tight angle to make it 2-0 to South Africa.
