Banyana Banyana lose against hosts Equatorial Guinea

Banyana Banyana lost 4-0 against hosts Equatorial Guinea in the Final of the 8th CAF African Women Championship, played in Malabo on Sunday.

The South African national senior women’s team travelled to the Malabo New Stadium in high spirits having outplayed Nigeria 1-0 in Bata on Wednesday, but came unstuck against a determined home side.

The hosts went into the break with a 1-0 lead after Gloria Chinasa took advantage of some poor defensive work to head home from a corner kick in the 43rd minute.

Playing in front of 20 000 passionate home fans, Equatorial Guinea doubled their lead in the 66th minute when second half substitute Tiga Costa scored with her first touch of the ball.

The home side were 3-0 up four minutes later, when midfielder and captain Genoveva Anonman made the South Africans pay for some sloppy defending. In the 72nd minute, Chinasa scored her second goal of the match, after a fine run on the left before scoring from a tight angle past an outstretched Banyana Banyana goalkeeper Thoko Mndaweni.

Only Banyana captain and midfielder Amanda Dlamini looked the part on the biggest football stage in African women’s football, with a solid display.

In the play-off for third and fourth places, Cameroon outplayed Nigeria 1-0.

Its a good start going forward, getting a silver Medal away is a milestone and thisis the first for Banyana. There is a room for improvement keep working hard, i do not want to use the aging word of saying we are proud ofyou, someone else will say it, all i can say is you did very well to get to the Final, now its time to take it forward from here and improve. A 4-0 drubbing in a final is clear that you are far from ready.

At least they made it to the final, and at least they qualify for the woman's world cup. Another team I know can't even qualify for AFCON. To take part in major tournaments they need to host them and still get knocked out in the first round. I'd walk in the streets proud with a Portia Modise jersey rather than a Simphiwe Tshabalala jersey

That is not enough. Banyana fresh from OLympics. You are so useless just like your brothers; Bafunny Bafunny. You can't beat Nigeria and loose with this margin to a country without facilities. No No No. The fact that you have already qualify does not mean that you were to take this game for granted.

SAeriuos discipline need to be taken to all who were our national jersey and not doing justice.

Same thing is still going to happen during AFCON.

Olny a FOOL celebrates such mediocrete. How can a national team team embarass the nation 4-0 and be said to have done well. Thats taking patriotism too far. Infact on their return , they should be detained in a army base. Banyana you are a disgrace !

I wonder if Mbalula was ever a winner himself like many of you who support a winning team only.

I see some people don't celebrate mediocrity. Was it a mediocre performance when Chiefs got walloped by Sundowns ? Was it mediocrity when Gorillas were hended their azzes by Supersport ? Is it mediocrity that Sundowns are bottom of the log ? But still we keep on supporting these teams.

Hypocrisy at it's best. The way I see it, this was just a bad day at the office. Lord knows we all have had one. Khosi4Life.

Dissappointed about the results. This mediocrity of praising bad performances must stop. We did the same with Bafana dnt qualify 4 anything, they play for fun not the pride of the nation. Banyana qualified, they got to the final, we support their fighting mentality but we curse out their loosing mentality.

But again, we have to blame safa. This women for them to improve they need game time. If only we can have double headers at each an every psl games, with women curtain raising and later after that u get your psl game. This will also bring back fans to the stadiums
