“We must finish the job back home” says Banyanya coach Desiree Ellis ahead of 2nd leg Olympic qualifer against Tanzania.

Banyana Banyana has a big advantage over Tanzania in today’s [Tuesday] second-leg Olympic qualifier in Mbombela. South Africa beat Tanzania 3-0 in Friday’s first-leg, keeping their hopes alive of competing in the Games in Paris in July. If South Africa wins today, they have to face either Cameroon or Nigeria in the final qualifying round. Banyana also played in the 2012 and 2016 Games

“It was always about us first. We must finish the job back home,” said Banyanya Banya coach Desiree Ellis. We don’t want to become complacent after the 3-0 win. Some people will say it’s a score that wins you the tie. However, the next goal in the (next) match could change things. We have to make sure that we score the next goal.”

The match kicks off at 17:00pm at Mbombela stadium, Nelspruit.
