Banyana Banyana has announced a number of changes to their squad to play the Netherlands and Sweden over the next week.

Banyana has an almost full compliment of players with the arrival of Amanda Mthandi, who was writing her exams.

Also joining the squad is goalkeeper Jessica Williams, who replaces Roxanne Barker who was unable to honour the national team call-up.

Still to come is the Australia-based duo of Refiloe Jane and Rhoda Mulaudzi – due to club commitment, they are expected in the Mother City on Wednesday.

South Africa will play two international friendly matches as part of preparations for the 2019 Women’s World Cup, which will be played in France in June.

In the first fixture, Banyana takes on the Netherlands on Saturday, at 3 pm. This will be followed by the match against Sweden on Tuesday at 7 pm. Both encounters are at Cape Town Stadium.
