National Under-17 women’s coach Simphiwe Dludlu says they want to give a good account of themselves in the upcoming World Cup in Uruguay.
A former Banyana captain, Dludlu will lead her team at the showpiece set to be played from November 13 to December 1.
Bantwana are in a tough Group B with Brazil, Japan and Mexico. They know all about playing against the Brazilians, having faced the South Americans in the BRICS tournament that took place in Johannesburg recently. The team finished third at the competition.
“We’ll be playing against quality sides in our group matches there, there’s no doubt about that,” Dludlu told SAFA's website.
“And that’s why we’ve decided to play a good number of friendly matches before we travel to Uruguay. Nothing is confirmed as yet, however, we’ll continue to keep our public updated. We’ve already started gathering as much information as we can about our opponents. And that’s because we really want to do good there.”
