Bantwana made history by simply reaching the World Cup in Uruguay.
Even though they were embarrassed 6-0 by Japan, SA Under-17 drew their first game 0-0 against Mexico. In their last group game they will play Brazil and can still progress to the knockout round if they win it.
On Twitter Chrissie Lola expressed her appreciation of the Banyana Banyana stars, underlining how the young players were inspired to become soccer starlets.
