Desiree Ellis has announced the squad of 21 players to represent South Africa at the 2018 Africa Women Cup of Nations tournament

The premier African Women’s football showpiece will be used as a 2019 FIFA Women World Cup qualifier – the top three nations in Ghana will represent the continent at the World Cup in France in June.

Ellis has selected the bulk of the squad that has been with Banyana Banyana for a long period of time.

The squad also boasts a lot of experience with most of the players having taken part in the Awcon before.

Ellis has also called up two uncapped players – Amanda Mthandi (University of Johannesburg) and Tiisetso Makhubela (Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies).

Here's how the announcement of the Banyana Banyana squad was showcased on Twitter on Wednesday.
