Banyana Banyana coach Desiree Ellis has applauded her “brand-new group of players” for executing the strategy perfectly during the 6-2 Cosafa Cup semifinal knocking of Malawi in Port Elizabeth on Thursday.

Malawi played the much better part of the match at Wolfson Stadium in Port Elizabeth with a player less after goalkeeper Samir Amidu received a straight red card in the early phases of the very first half for a foul on Hilda Magaia.

South Africa will now satisfy Botswana in the much-anticipated final on Saturday at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium where a win will provide the South Africans a record four titles in a row.

So outstanding have the South African senior ladies’s national group been in this tournament that they have now scored 20 objectives in 4 matches at an impressive average of 5 objectives per video game.
