Banyana Banyana coach Desiree Ellis has named her strongest possible line-up for Friday’s international friendly against the USA.
Kick-off is at 01:30 AM South African time.

Kaylin Swart starts in goal ahead of Andile Dlamini despite the Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper’s good form in the CAF Women’s Champions League qualifiers.

Kholosa Biyana will play just in front of the back to provide protect while Linda Motlhalo will be the creative mind in midfield.
