Ngobeni on her first Banyana call-up


Regirl Ngobeni says it is a massive achievement to have received her first Banyana Banyana call-up for the Aisha Buhari Cup.

The tournament is currently underway in Lagos, Nigeria.

The rising star goal-minder aims to make her presence felt in the senior women’s national setup.

She believes being in the same team with experienced players will help her grow as an individual and in her football career.

“When playing in the junior level, you always want to go up to the highest level which is where I am currently at and that is why this opportunity means a lot to me,” the Mpumalanga-born shot-stopper told

“I am filled with emotions and still trying to digest all this. I am very excited and I want to learn and absorb as much as I can.”

The goalie is also committed to her studies as she is a final year B.Ed (Foundation Phase) student and a tutor at the University of Western Cape.

“It feels amazing and inspiring to witness and be in the same camp with all the players who are representing us abroad, it shows that women’s football is growing in our country,” added the University of Western Cape goalkeeper.

“Our expectation for this cup is to win and show that we are one of the African Queens.”
