South Africa Women vs China Women Match Preview
This match could effectively end one of these teams’ World Cup ambitions and South Africa are expected to be the side facing an early exit.
Both countries suffered an opening defeat and neither came as a surprise, with China losing 1-0 to Germany who are among the favourites to lift the trophy.
South Africa, meanwhile, threatened an upset when they led for almost 45 minutes against Spain following a goal from Thembi Kgatlana. But two penalties turned the game in Spain’s favour and they added a third goal for good measure to leave the Banyana Banyana beaten more decisively than perhaps they deserved to be.
China, who were runners-up in the 1999 World Cup, will be hoping their final Group B opponents, Spain, have not beaten Germany on Wednesday (result not known at the time of writing) and preferably lost to give them the best possible chance of reaching the last 16.
They will be relying on their top scorer within the current squad, Shanshan Wang, to continue the excellent run she had been enjoying ahead of this tournament (see stats above).
The Spain match may just have been South Africa’s opportunity to make an impact at this World Cup and this contest is likely to go to form, with China prevailing comfortably.
