The reigning Women’s Africa Cup of Nations (WAFCON) champions, Banyana Banyana, are gearing up for an international showcase as they prepare to face Senegal in two captivating away friendly matches. Scheduled during the FIFA break, these clashes are set to unfold on the 31st of May and the 4th of June, 2024, marking significant dates in the team’s calendar.

Under the strategic guidance of Coach Dr. Desiree Ellis, the South African squad is poised to leverage these matches as a critical phase in their preparation for the forthcoming WAFCON. Dr. Ellis, expressing her anticipation for the contests, remarked, “We have always said that we are going to utilize the FIFA dates going forward and we now have these two international friendlies against Senegal. We need to stay active to be ready and prepare for the WAFCON.”

The upcoming friendlies against Senegal aren’t just regular fixtures; they are perceived as pivotal moments for player assessment and team strategy. “There are players coming back from injury, and we also want to see other players during these friendies against Senegal. We need to prepare and be ready for WAFCON. We haven’t received any communication on when it is going to happen, but we will utilize these FIFA dates to make sure that we start preparing,” Dr. Ellis added.

With the next WAFCON scheduled to be hosted by Morocco, the exact dates for the tournament’s commencement remain under wraps. Nonetheless, Banyana Banyana, sponsored by Sasol, is unwavering in their resolve to defend their title with distinction. As anticipation builds, the final 23-player squad selected to journey to Senegal will soon be announced, promising a blend of experienced campaigners and fresh talent eager to make their mark.
