Having began their Cosafa Under-20 Champions on a positive note, Basetsana coach Siphiwe Dludlu is content with her team’s display and is looking forward to their next Group A game against Namibia at Gelvandale Stadium on Saturday.

Dludlu’s Basetsana thrashed Zimbabwe 3-0 in their opening game of the tournament, but she says there are a few areas she needs to fix ahead of their clash with Namibia.

“We are pleased with how the girls performed against Zimbabwe, but we are focusing on Namibia now. We want them to build from yesterday’s performance,” the Basetsana coach was quoted on the Safa website.

“In training today we had the opportunity to sharpen up a few areas and focus more on set plays, while ensuring that the players who didn’t play the full match managed to increase their level of fitness with a small sided game.”
