Banyana takes on Tanzania in a friendly match

 

BANYANA Banyana will travel to Tanzania tomorrow to face their east African counterparts in an international friendly match to be played in Dar Es Salaam on Sunday. Kick-Off is at 4pm
Banyana will use the clash as preparation for the upcoming African Women’s Championship (AWC) qualifier against Zambia, while at the same time building the momentum for the 2012 London Olympic Games scheduled for July. The AWC qualifier will be played in Zambia next week Saturday.
The team is currently in camp at the North West University High Performance Institute in Potchefstroom.
Head Coach, Joseph Mkhonza has selected 18 players to represent South Africa in Tanzania.
“This friendly match against Tanzania is very crucial for us as we prepare for the AWC qualifiers. It is important for the team to take on strong international competition on the road to the Olympics as we will be playing away. We haven’t played a match since March and the Sasol League is in recess, so these training camps and the friendly matches are helping to keep the players in good physical condition,” said Mkhonza.
 The Banyana Banyana technical team has taken a different approach to training the squad by dividing them into their different positions on the field.
 “Dividing the players into their various on-field departments has helped us greatly in focusing on these departments individually. It enables us to tackle the different field movements as well as positions and also allows us to work on set-pieces. We’ve had a serious lack in the goal scoring department but within the two days we’ve implemented this programme we’ve seen plenty improvement,” said Mkhonza.
 Banyana Banyana midfielder, Kylie Ann Louw will join her team mates tomorrow.
