The former player and Head coach of the Bayana Bayana, Desiree Ellis cut a relief figure after overseeing his side 1-0 triumph over Nigeria at the Cape Coast stadium on Sunday, with the south African tactician admitting they beat a good team.
We played against a good team today. We needed to execute our plan.
The Banyana Banyana went into the game against the Super Falcons as underdogs but kept their shape throughout the game and looked dangerous in counter attacks until that moment of magic from chrestina kgatlana.
“They didn’t threaten us that much. We forced them to play long balls which was not their plan and it took that moment of brilliance to decide the match.
The victory is for all coaches that have sacrificed all this years and all South Africans.
Is a good start. We look forward to the next game”
