Defenders Bambanani Mbane and Tiisetso Makhubela were brought in to play in central defence ahead of captain Janine van Wyk and Noko Matlou, while Bongeka Gamede got her first start in a Banyana Banyana shirt as she earned her second cap playing at left-back.
This was not only Banyana Banyana biggest ever victory in the Cosafa Women’s Championship but also the clubs biggest victory. Banyana were drawn in Group A alongside the Comoros Islands, Malawi and Madagascar.
