There are indications banyana banyana of south africa head coach, desiree ellis expects a difficult group stage contest at the 2022 women’s africa cup of nations.
South africa is in group c against nine-time champions super falcons of nigeria, botswana and burundi.
But footbal experts think ellis’ side could be a tough nut to crack for the super falcons.
Banyana banyana defeated the super falcons 4-2 the last time both teams met at the aisha buhari invitational tournament last september this notwithstanding ellis says the draw is not going to be easy as nigeria, the defending champions and multiple winners always bring its a game and knows what it takes to win.
The banyana banyana head coach who said his side had played the nigeria side a few times in the group stages says he thinks nigeria has raised its levels and they have to raise their levels even higher to get a positive result as the first game is the most important game and will take a huge effort.
