Where do Banyana’s AWCON group opponents rank among the top in the world?

With the Banyana’s AWCON group opponents 2022 Africa Women’s Cup of Nations looming on the horizon, numerous teams, including the South African Women’s National Team, will begin analyzing their group opponents.

Banyana Banyana coach Desiree Ellis’s team is in Group C and will face the Super Falcons, Africa’s top-ranked team, who will be out for vengeance after losing to the South Africans in the inaugural Aisha Buhari Cup Final in Nigeria in September.

The Falcons won the final between the two teams to capture their 11th AWCON championship. The first encounter in the group stages concluded with a South African victory, but the Falcons got the last laugh after winning the final between the two sides to clinch their 11th AWCON trophy.

Burundi and Botswana, two of the group’s members, are the other members. Burundi will be considered the “Underdogs” in Group C because they are unranked and will be competing in the AWCON finals for the first time.

Banyana Banyana began their preparations for the continental competition on Friday, June 10th, when a preliminary squad met in camp, and coach Ellis said that finalizing the final list of players for the event will be a selection nightmare for the Technical Staff.

“We had a great meeting. The tempo and intensity with which we played were quite high, and the one-two touch football was excellent.

“Everyone raised their hands, and we have a huge headache, which is exactly what we want when it comes to picking the final team.” We want to make certain that we hire the greatest players for the job.
