Van Wyk landed with Banyana Banyana on Wednesday morning following their first world cup appearance in France while Bafana Bafana are running through their last bit of preparations in Egypt.
Van Wyk says it is time for Bafana Bafana to also show up on the continental stage.
Despite not winning a single game at the World Cup, Van Wyk, was proud of the fight and determination her troops showed against the world’s best. She reminded harsh critics that women’s football in the country is still at a building level.
The stalwart captain reminded football fans that they do not have to wait very long to see the team play again with their focus also shifting to the upcoming Cosafa Women’s Championships in Port Elizabeth starting in July. – Report by Thando Gqamane
