14 April 2021 – Head coach of the Sasol-sponsored Banyana Banyana believes her side is making good progress following months of inactivity – but now she wants stronger opposition to prepare for the future.

The South Africans played two matches in three days and emerged victorious – defeating Zambia and Botswana 3-1 and 2-0 respectively in international friendly fixtures.

There were three goal scorers – Noko Matlou and Thembi Kgatlana (both 2 each), as well as Gabriela Salgado.

Ellis is also excited that she won the encounters without the bulk of the overseas-based players as that confirms the strenght and growth of the team Banyana Banyana will next in action in the June FIFA Calendar date where Ellis is confident they will secure two other friendly matches – in the meantime, she and her technical will have a chance to look for more players in the Sasol League as well as the SAFA Women’s National League that is starting later this month.
