Banyana Banyana have received a reality check during their World Cup preparations in Cyprus

The Czech Republic came from behind to beat the South African ladies national team 2-1 in their last group game.

In the 17th minute, Linda Motlhalo assisted Mamello Makhabane who opened the scoring for Banyana Banyana.

The Czech team knew they were in for a long day when they were reduced to 10 players. Jarchovska Andre was red carded for a dangerous tackle on Refiloe Jane.

Even though the Europeans went down to 10 players, they eventually beat South Africa with two late goals to sum up Banyana's disappointing campaign.

That wrapped up the Cyprus Cup group stages for Banyana who were embarrassed 4-1 against Korea DPR in their previous game.
