Just two matches stand between the South Africa’s Under-20 women’s national football side, Basetsana and a place in this year’s FIFA World Cup in France.

The championship is scheduled to hold between August 5 and 24 and Basetsana now faces the Falconets in a first leg qualifier in Polokwane on Saturday before the return leg in Nigeria in a fortnight.

Basetsana reached the final qualification phase of the global showpiece with convincing victories over Namibia and Burundi to set up what is set to be a tough two-legged affair against the Africa’s super power in women football.
