South Africa/Nigeria: Basetsana Depart for Nigeria

The South African National U20 Women's National team (Basetsana) departed for Nigeria on Friday morning for their third round, first leg FIFA U20 Women's World Cup Canada 2014 qualifier to be staged at the National Stadium in Abuja on Saturday, 11 January 2014.

Kick-off is at 16h00 (15h00 SA time).

The Basetsana squad held their final training session at the Edenvale Football Club on Thursday (9 January) prior to their departure for Nigeria.

Basetsana coach, Sheryl Botes said she was happy that they were able to fit in the final training session on Thursday before heading to Nigeria.

"We had our final training session just to make sure we have everything covered and one or two things we were not happy about following the practice match played on Wednesday (8 January) afternoon.

"We worked on the small issues that we needed to repeat to ensure we are covered. Preparations have gone well and we're ready to compete against Nigeria on Saturday. We also hope that travelling won't affect the players because it is something we all need to get through," said Botes.

Basetsana head of delegation, Letima Mogorosi urged the players to remain strong, stay focused and that they should remember to go out there and do the country proud in Nigeria.

The South Africans are scheduled to return on Monday, 13 January 2014.
