Janine van Wyk, I believe we can Do it

An emotional Janine van Wyk, Banyana Banyana captain, speaking after qualifying for their maiden World Cup

“Im over the moon , so excited , i don’t who to go hug, I’m extremely proud about this team, some of us we have been long time coming, we have missed out of the numerous  opportunity to qualify for world cup in the past but today here we are, we have done it, we qualified for the world cup unbelievable”

“We knew that Mali were going to be a difficult opponent, technically they might not have been at our standard of  football but they fought hard beating Ghana and fighting against Cameroon which are best in Africa, we needed to be on top of our game, i told Lebohang Ramalepe why she hasn’t scored those goals where we don’t know if they were going in or not and she did that against Mali, is amazing”

“Im with a special group of players, every time we meet we set our targets and next target is getting those medals around our necks and i believe that we can do it, it has been a long journey for our coach …, me as a leader of a team and  player that has been here for long, but  im not the only one, Matlou, Nyandeni, Mammello and this so special to us , we are gonna go away from here without putting a fight and hopefully lift the trophy.” Said Janine van Wyk
