The Banyana Banyana’s opened the score sheet in as early as eleven minutes through Linda Mothlalo before Khanya Xesi doubled the lead moments later following a defence error in by one of Malawi defender.

Kgaelebane Mohlakoang made it three before Xesi scored his second of day and tgen Mothlaho came in with extra two goals to complete her hat trick.

At this year’s competition, Malawi managed only a single win and suffered two losses.

This means that head coach Maggie Chombo Sadik has missed her target set by herself before flying to the rainbow nation of at least finishing in the semifinals.
