Harry Awurumibe, Live in France

South Africa’s Banyana Banyana could not emulate their fellow Africans, Nigeria to win their second match today against China Peoples Republic at Parc de Prince in Paris as they once again lost 1-0 to their opponents courtesy of 40th minute Ying Li goal.

The Coach Desire Ellis team by this result is working a tight rope for the qualification to the second round of the 8th FIFA Women’s World Cup final in France. A moment of madness by South Africa’s defenders gifted China the chance to score the only goal that has condemned the South Africans to the bottom of Group B after losing 3-1 to Spain in the opening day match.

But it was the Australians who caused the biggest upset earlier this evening after The Matildas came from behind to pip Brazil 3-2 in Montpellier.
