Banyana Banyana made their debut in the Women's World Cup, losing to Spain 3-1 in their opening game on Saturday.
The game started like a dream come true when African Player of the Year, South Africa's Thembi Kgatlana curled a brilliant strike from outside the area in the 25th minute.
Unfortunately Banyana went on to lose the game 3-1, giving away two penalties on their way to going down to the Europeans.
Nevertheless, this was a fantastic occasion for the nation of South Africa, witnessing the ladies soccer team make history.
Kgatlana made history of her own, scoring Banyana's first ever goal in a Women's World Cup and you can see how much it means with the wonderful video of her family celebrating the goal at home in South Africa.
We've collected a number of other beautiful moments, such as when the South Africa national anthem was played and the moment Banyana came onto the field.
We also take a look at their changeroom. There's a special message from the Springboks rugby team, wishing Banyana well in the tournament too.
We start with a message from star player Janine Van Wyk on the highs and lows of their opening game against Spain.
Wow what a game full of emotions. We honestly played our hearts out in our first ever @FIFAWWC . I bet we had the whole 🇿🇦 off their seats with @Kgatlanathe1st spectacular goal. Tough loss for us but we will continue to battle in the next. Thanks for all the support 🇿🇦🤗— Janine Van Wyk (@Janinevanwyk5) June 8, 2019
