With the Women's World Cup set to start in less than three weeks, Fifa's introducing Banyana Banyana

African Player of the Year Thembi Kgatlana is looking forward to representing Banyana Banyana on the world stage next month.

Fifa created this little video to showcase South Africa. It introduces the country to the women's football world, explaining that South Africa's only been participating in this game (in female football) for over two decades. The video makes the point that many talented young SA female soccer fans are beginning to realise that they can succeed by choosing soccer as their sport.

For the Women's World Cup, South Africa is placed in a difficult group with Spain, Germany and China.
