Banyana bag three points

Andisiwe Mgcoyi scores as Banyana beat Senegal

Posted: 31 October 2012 Time: 09:20 pm

Banyana Banyana beat Senegal 1-0 in their second match of the CAF 2012 African Women Championship at the Malabo Stadium, which keeps their hopes alive in Group A.

The South Africans headed to the clash on the back of a 1-0 loss on Sunday to hosts Equatorial Guinea in their first match, but this time they were not to be denied thanks to striker Andisiwe Mgcoyi.

The lanky Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies (Sasol League Gauteng) player finished off a good move after a period of extensive Banyana pressure in the 70th minute to give the South Africans a hard-fought and much-needed win.

Portia Modise played her 100th international game.

Banyana will leave the island for the mainland on Thursday to prepare for their final Group A fixture against the Democratic Republic of Congo in Bata on Saturday.

@ EMMAJA

Mbesuma does not play women soccer. Unless you are secretly telling us that you are coming out of the closet. Watch out, Mbesuma looks like Orlando Pirates chairman's son in law.
You will get a backache. Maybe look at Naturena for a mate!

Benni to join Kaizer Chiefs? PLUS Mphela soon to know his fate

NATURENA, the home of Kaizer Chiefs, could be Benni McCarthy's next base.

NATURENA, the home of Kaizer Chiefs, could be Benni McCarthy's next base.

Chiefs' manager Bobby Motaung hinted yesterday: "There is a big fish in Cape Town we are talking to in view of bringing it to Chiefs."

McCarthy is the only prominent player in the Mother City who is club-less and training with Ajax Cape Town, and people who are close to both the Urban Warriors and McCarthy further gave credence to Motaung's insinuation that the former Bafana Bafana frontman could be "the big fish" Motaung is targeting.

"Our coach is targeting this big fish from Cape Town, and we are doing the same as a club," Motaung said.

"I can't reveal the name of the player but what I can say is that he is not just another player from next door.

"He is a player worth his sail."
