Spain-based duo report for Banyana camp


Thembi Kgatlana and Noko Matlou have linked up with their national team compatriots at Fun Valley, Johannesburg.

On Monday morning, Banyana Banyana started preparations for their two upcoming international friendlies against Zambia and Botswana.

Coach Desiree Ellis has put together a squad to start preparations for the 2022 Africa Women’s Cup of Nations set to take place in Morocco.

Amanda Mthandi, who is on the books of CD Badajoz, also in Spain, is expected to also report for camp by end of day on Tuesday. Her arrival will mean there are no more outstanding players towards the two games.

In the last edition of the competition, Banyana Banyana lost to Nigeria on penalties. Since the loss, the majority of the national team stars have moved to prominent clubs in Europe where they have been doing well in recent years.

The duo come to camp at a back of a big victory in the Primera Division in Spain. Eibar defeated Real Sociedad 1-0 away from home and Kgatlana laid the assist for the goal.

South Africa and Zambia will face each other on the 10th of April before the hosts take on Botswana three days later.
