Banyana Banyana will travel back to South Africa with their heads held high after holding world champions Japan to a goalless draw at the London Olympics today.
The South Africans had nothing to play for but pride following 4-1 and 3-0 defeats to Sweden and Canada respectively, but showed great fight and determination to at least finish with a point for their efforts.
And it could have been more but for Portia Modise’s shot being saved by Japanese goalkeeper Ayumi Kaihori with 20 minutes left in the game.
