WAFCON 2022: SA beat Tunisia to make last four – Highlights

A perfect streak this far for the South African Women team in the on going WAFCON competition in Morocco. Bayana Bayana has recorded four straight wins this far crushing the likes of Nigeria on their path to the semi finals. Their latest victim was Tunisia in the quarter finals played last night.

As the prediction cards will read it was South Africa that dominated the game from the early exchanges. Striker Seoposenwe ran pass the Tunisian defense line to slot in an inside foot low shot for the curtain raiser and lone goal of the game in the first half. The second half saw the South Africans switch into game management mood with qualification already guaranteed. South Africa gets automatic qualification for next year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup.
