Windhoek - Banyana Banyana has advanced to the semi-finals of the African Women's Championship with a 5-1 win over Algeria at Independence Stadium in Windhoek, on Saturday.

Coming into the game bottom of the group with one point from two games, Banyana needed a convincing win to proceed to the semi-finals.

The top three teams at this year's tournament will qualify for the 2015 Fifa Women's World Cup in Canada.

A brace by Portia Modise and goals by Sanah Mollo, Mamello Makhabane and Amanda Dlamini sealed the much needed three points and goal difference for Banyana.

Dlamini put her side in the lead in the 37th minute.

The cross came in from Modise, and Dlamini controlled in the box and easily tapped-in for the opener.

Modise extended the lead five minutes later, scoring her 99th goal in national team colours.

Sanah Mollo scored the third goal for her side in the 70th minute.

Later, Makhabane drifted a place kick into goal that confused the defenders and the keeper for the fourth goal for South Africa.

Modise then notched up her 100th goal for Banyana with just minutes remaining.
