Ellis Focuses On Depth And Versatility

Banyana Banyana is gearing up for the upcoming FIFA break with a two-match friendly series against Senegal.

Head Coach Dr. Desiree Ellis, recently named COSAFA Women’s Coach of the Year, has announced the squad for these crucial matches taking place on 31 May and 4 June in Senegal.

Dr. Ellis highlights the importance of testing squad depth and versatility:

“We are always looking at the depth and the versatility within our team, and we have made some changes to the squad for the upcoming fixtures against Senegal,” Dr Ellis said. “This selection presents an exciting opportunity for us to assess and explore the potential of other players within our core group.”

The coach emphasizes the dual focus of integrating new talent while retaining the core group’s winning spirit:

“We are not only investing in the future of the team, but we are also providing opportunities now for all players to grow and to contribute to the success of the team.”

These friendlies serve a vital purpose in maintaining momentum for Banyana Banyana as they prepare to defend their WAFCON title in Morocco at a yet-to-be-confirmed date:

“We would like to utilize the FIFA dates and stay active in preparation for the WAFCON when CAF confirms the dates of the tournament,” Dr Ellis said.
