Banyana Banyana lost the first game against Chile 2-1, and these two games were excellent preparation for next month’s Africa Women’s Cup of Nations tournament in Ghana.
Chile will participate at the 2019 Fifa Women’s World Cup for the first time. Banyana will need to finish in the top three places of the Awcon to join them.
The draw in Santiago showed that Banyana is improving their performances when playing abroad.
"Chile broke South Africans’ hearts when they scored the equaliser – again from second half substitute Javier Grez’s header coming from a free kick. Banyana Banyana seem to be struggling when it comes to defending set-pieces as this is the third header to be scored by Chile in two games," wrote Safa media.
