Goal has your complete guide to the Fifa World Cup, including fixtures, results, tables and squads, as SA get ready for their first global tournament

South Africa will participate in their maiden Fifa Women's World Cup which gets underway in France on Friday. 

Banyana Banyana have not had the best of preparation for the competition, having failed to win any of their 10 international matches since qualifying for the global showpiece in November 2018.

They have drawn four of those and lost the other six - a record which has raised eyebrows among football fans around the country. 

Surprisingly, they have conceded a whopping 24 goals while finding the back of the just eight times in those 10 matches.

Banyana find themselves in one of the toughest groups at this year's finals, having been drawn alongside Spain, Germany and China.

The three nations have been to many World Cup finals before, and coach Desiree Ellis knows that her charges will need to be at their utmost best to get out of Group B.

South Africa's World Cup squad


Coach Ellis named her Fifa Women's World Cup squad on May 17 and as expected, she kept the core of the team which qualified for the finals in France. 

Big-name players such as Janine van Wyk, Thembi Kgatlana, Refiloe Jane made the cut, while a few players that are currently plying their trade abroad were also selected. 

Ellis also included younger players to go and gain as much experience as possible at the World Cup, perhaps in an attempt to try and lay the foundation for many years to come.  

Bambanani Mbane, Amanda Mthandi and Kholosa Biyana are some of the players who will be looking to leave their mark in France, and possibly be considered for future call-ups.
