“We have had good sessions here in Bulawayo and the players know what is expected of them against Lesotho. As I have been saying, a positive start is key as it makes life easier as the tournament progresses. What is important right now is to take each match as it comes,” Ellis told Safa.net

Ellis says she has also had a look at other group opponents Namibia and Botswana.

“We watched Namibia hand a heavy defeat to Botswana (4-0), we picked up some notes and we will work on that after our first match. Right now the focus is on Lesotho.”

Banyana will play Namibia on Friday, before facing off with Botswana in the last group stages match at Barbourfields Stadium two days later.
