JOHANNESBURG: South Africa’s Women National Senior Soccer Team Coach, Desiree Ellis has announced 29 players going to the training camp for the preparation of the COSAFA Women’s Championship.

The tournament will be hosted by South Africa and it will begin at the end of August.

The camp will take place in Johannesburg from 5-10 August, Ellis say this is a very crucial time for Banyana Banyana.

“Continuity is key, especially at this time of the year. You must also remember that we are heading to a very hectic period for Banyana Banyana. This camp will also help them understand what it is we want from them and also understand their roles,” said Ellis.

“We have brought in 5 new players – Tiisetso Makhubela (Mamelodi Sundowns), Salome Kekana (TUT-PTA), Nomvuyo Bhengu (Durban Ladies) Amanda Mthandi (University of Johannesburg) and Siyamthanda Skeyi (Thunderbirds FC) from the various roadshows we have been conducting around the country.

We have also recalled Kholosa Biyana and Sduduzo Dlamini, who were both injured, just to have a look at them again,” said Ellis.
