Banyana Banyana coach Desiree Ellis has confirmed that Hilda Magaia is back in training for the national team after picking up a knock in their tournament opener against Sweden, and also confirmed a clean bill of health in her side. Magaia received a knock in the action of scoring South Africa’s opening goal of the tournament, and couldn’t continue with the match that Banyana lost 2-1 against the Swedes. Banyana had an off-day on Monday and returned to training on Tuesday with all players available for training ahead of their second match of the tournament against Argentina on Friday.

South Africa need a positive result to keep themselves in contention for a place in the round of  16. Both teams will be desperate for the win as Argentina also suffered defeat in their tournament opener against Italy.
