The South African national women's team is in Durban, getting ready for their big test at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday

The Banyana Banyana squad was training at the Princess Magogo Stadium in KwaMashu on Tuesday.

You can enjoy the following photographs and videos of the team going through their paces.

South Africa's coach Desiree Ellis spoke to Safa Media about the upcoming game against Jamaica.

“We are very excited to be in Durban, as you all know this is part of our World Cup preparations. We have a similar history with Jamaica – their men’s team qualified for their first FIFA World Cup in France in 1998, just like Bafana Bafana, now we also make our debut at the tournament just like their women’s national team, also in France, that is very exciting,” Ellis told Safa.

“This is also a different type of game and an important one at that, as each and every match prepares you for the next one. The players are excited as it is 67 days away from the World Cup and it is getting closer and closer. Even though we have not been together, players have been training as we have given them programmes, and some have been playing matches and also tournaments. We will prepare well for the Sunday match as it is a farewell match, and we will put up a good showing.”
