Banyana Banyana will be facing Mali today at 20:30 at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium. Banyana who topped Group B after drawing (1-1) with Zambia, will now face a fierce opponent in Mali.
Banyana have reached the semi-finals before in the 2010 edition of the African Woman Cup of Nation (AWCON),and only 2 players from remain from that team today. This leaves very little advantage over Mali who have never reached this stage of the tournament before.
Mali finished second in the Group A only losing to Cameroon. It will be looking to impress as Banyana and will be heading into the match as favourites with more momentum. The South African team will have to show a disciplined and ruthless mentality in order to gain victory.
