Banyana Banyana to play Nigeria in 2018 AWCON final

South Africa’s women’s national team Banyana Banyana is one win away from lifting the 2018 Africa Women Cup of Nations. Banyana defeated  Mali (2-0) yesterday in Cape Coast Sports Stadium – Banyana will now move on to face Nigeria again in the final.

Two goals from Kgatlana in 31 minute and Ramalepe in 81′ minute secured South Africa a place in final.  Banyana will now play Nigeria for the second time, having previously faced off in the group stages which saw South Africa come away with shock (1-0) victory.

Banyana will be hoping that they can do it again and get the double over Nigeria at Accra Sports Stadium on Saturday at 18:00. Nigeria on the other hand will be looking for revenge when the two sides meet. The two African teams automatically qualify to the FIFA Women’s World Cup by virtue of making it to the finals.
