Cape Town - Banyana Banyana captain, Janine van Wyk took time out the team's training schedule to speak to ahead of the senior women’s national team’s clash again China.

The South Africans suffered an unfortunate 3-1 loss to Spain in their opening match and will be looking at doing better in their second group match on Thursday, June 13.

"The China match is a do-or-die match for us," Van Wyk said. "We have a very big task ahead of us especially with them losing in their first match against Germany they will be coming out harder than they did to get a win.

"We need to try to hold them and hopefully have a set game-plan that can benefit us more than it did in our first game.

"It's now an important game for us to see whether we'll be making it through to the next round."

Kick-off is at 21:00.
