Banyana thump Tanzania in a friendly

Posted: 31 August 2014 Time: 22:08

Banyana Banyana registered yet another victory ahead of the African Women’s Championship tournament after beating Tanzania 6-1 in a friendly at the old Peter Mokaba Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Shiwe Nogwanya, Leandra Smeda, Silindile Ngubane, Sanah Mollo and Janine Van Wyk, who all play for teams in the Sasol League, registered their names on the score-sheet.

Coach Vera Pauw made only one change from the team that beat Zambia 4–0 in Lusaka a week ago; Mamello Makhabane starting ahead of youngster Thembi Kgatlana in midfield.

The visitors broke the deadlock on 15 minutes when captain Sophia Edward scored from a free-kick.

Banyana levelled in the 21st minute when Nogwanya found the back of the net after a goalmouth scramble.

Just before the half-hour mark Smeda extended the lead with a header from a corner-kick, before Van Wyk made it three in the 53rd minute, scoring her 11th goal in national team colours.

Pauw’s charges continued pilling pressure on the Tanzanians, missing a couple of opportunities before Ngubane scored twice deep into the second stanza and Mollo netted in the dying seconds.
