WAFCON 2022: South Africa Set Sight On Title After Narrow Win Over Nigeria — Coach Desire Ellis

Desiree Ellis, Head Coach of South Africa, said the win against Nigeria on Monday had set the tone for her team as they seek to win the 2022 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations (WAFCON) title.

Desiree Ellis’ outfit scored twice in two minutes thanks to Jermaine Seoposenwe and Hilda Magaia's goals in the 60th and 62nd minutes to destabilise their opponents.

Ellis said in a post-match press conference that the goal of her team was to win the tournament, adding that the win against Nigeria was the first step towards achieving their goal.

“This is a very big win for us as a team. We needed to get this result because it sets the tone for the rest of the tournament.

“We held a meeting on our goals and ambitions before training.  We want to qualify for the World Cup and win the title here.”

“We know what happened in 2018, but we have matured over the past four years and there are changes in our team.

“Jermaine played about four positions today. That is the versatility we have now as a team.”

“This victory is for everyone back home and for all the coaches. This is for everyone connected to women’s football back home,” a content Ellis added.
