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.

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.
