The SASOL-sponsored Banyana Banyana are through to the final of the Women’s Africa Cup of Nations (WAFCON) after beating Zambia 1-0 in a tough semifinal in Morocco on Monday night.
The South African senior national team scored the priceless winning goal from the penalty spot after Linda Motlhalo converted deep in stoppage-time. It was a hard-fought win for the South Africans, as the Zambians put up a fight.
Coach Desiree Ellis’ charges had to wait until the final minutes of the match, when the referee awarded the penalty after consulting the VAR following a foul on Jermaine Seoposenwe.
Good morning Finalists! 🇿🇦💚💛
