Coming off a 3-0 victory over Ghana, South Africa are aiming to wrap up their international outing in the Aisha Buhari Cup in style when they take on hosts Nigeria on Tuesday, September 21.

Banyana Banyana trounced the Black Queens to secure their biggest victory in all nine meetings and also ended a six-match winless streak over their West African counterparts last Friday.

The comprehensive triumph gave Desiree Ellis’ side a huge confidence boost ahead of their showdown with Nigeria in their last match of the invitational tournament at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena.

The reigning African Women’s Coach of the Year has spoken up on how her side is aiming to approach the high-profile tune-up match against the Super Falcons.

“We’ve got more footage of Nigeria playing other matches and we have to look at all of that to analyse because it’s different opposition. We have to make sure that we get the plan right,” Ellis CAFOnline.com.

“They got two late goals (against Mali), but we know what they (Nigeria) are capable of. They are not just the number one team in Africa for nothing and have shown the pedigree for many years. We have to remain at the top of our game and concentrated too.”

On her possible line up, the former South Africa international vowed to put forward her very best legs in the bid to claim an upset win over Randy Waldrum’s ladies.

“We are always looking at playing other players and also win the game. We also want to put our best lineup on the field,” she continued.

“Our players are always ready to step up. It doesn’t matter who gets chosen. We’ve shown that over the last couple of years that we trust the players and their abilities which is the most important thing. If the player gets given an opportunity I am sure they will rise up.”
