Amanda Dlamini scored two goals, while the other two were scored by Jermaine Seoposenwe and Amanda Sister.

"We wish our national women's team good luck and we want to thank them for making the nation proud with their great performance. We are hopeful that with their commitment and great performance, they stand a good chance to qualify for the Women's World Cup next June in Germany," he said.

In order to reach the finals, Banyana will have to defeat Group B leaders, Cameroon, on Thursday afternoon at Daveyton's Sinaba stadium.

Like Nigeria, Cameroon is also the tournament's favourite. In their group stage opening match, they forced defending champions, Equatorial Guinea, to a 2-all draw.

In the build-up international friendly match for the tournament, the 76th ranked Cameroon walloped Augustine Makalakalane's girls 2-nil in front of their home crowd at Moruleng stadium in the North West province.

The SAFA President urged South Africans to go out in large numbers on Thursday to fill the 20 000-capacity stadium and cheer for their national team.

"It is important for us as a nation to unite and direct our energy towards [the team]. They need our support. We are urging people to go out and cheer on the team," he said.

The two teams that will reach the finals will represent the continent at the FIFA Women's World Cup next year. - BuaNews
