Banyana head coach, Desiree Ellis emphasized the importance of getting a good result in the opening game of the competition.

“The first game of the tournament is always the biggest game and this makes it even better because it’s against defending champions Nigeria and because it is Nigeria, the game is bigger than what it is supposed to be,” Ellis told a press conference ahead of the game.

“We want to start well and we know it is going to be a tough encounter. They are not Champions for nothing,” she added.

“They have been consistent over the years and that is one area that we need to improve on; to be consistent in our performances and be classified amongst the best.

“It’s all about the three points at the moment and getting the tournament to a good start,” added Ellis.
