Mali coach Saloum Mohamed says they did their best in their Africa Women’s Cup of Nations semi-final tie against Banyana Banyana, but they were just too good for them.

Banyana beat the Malians 2-0 to reach the final of the competition and also earned a spot at next year’s Fifa Women’s World Cup in France.

“We played against a well organised team which has great strength, unfortunately we lost 2-0. We did our best, but again, we played against a very good team,” said the Mali coach through a interpreter.

Mali have failed to reach the final of the competition, but can still qualify for the World Cup if they beat Cameroon in the third place playoff match on Friday.
