South African name squad to face the USWNT

South African Senior Women’s National Team coach Vera Pauw has named 25 players to travel to the USA where her team will face the reigning Olympic and World Champions in an international friendly match.

Vera Pauw has kept the bulk of the team that has done duty for the Sasol-sponsored Banyana Banyana since the Olympic qualifiers. The Banyana Banyana mentor needs only 18 + four additional players for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games – and this means from the 25 that is travelling to the USA, three will not be going to Brazil.

Vera will make her final decision when the squad returns from the USA, and the identity of the players will only be announced on Thursday 14th July 2016 when SASCOC makes the announcement at a press conference to reveal Team South Africa.
