Durban – Banyana Banyana inflicted yet another humiliating defeat on Mozambique, winning 6-0 at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg.

They won the two-legged Africa Women’s Cup of Nations qualification tie 13-0 after having claimed a 7-0 win in Maputo last week.

It took Banyana just ten minutes to find the lead through Bambanani Mbane before Linda Motlhalo doubled the lead just after the half-hour mark. Hildah Magaia continued her good form by making it three for Banyana before half-time.

Magaia notched her brace early in the second half before Motlhalo fittingly also notched her brace in her 50th national team appearance by the 65th minute.

After being introduced from the bench late in the game, Sibulele Holweni got on the scoresheet to make it 6-0.

Deisree Ellis’s side have now edged closer to qualifying for the AWCON as they advance to the second round. Should they win their two legged second round tie, they will qualify for the AWCON which will be played in Morocco in July 2022.
