Johannesburg - Banyana Banyana coach Joseph Mkhonza says his side are ready for their match against neighbours Mozambique in an international friendly at Kanyamazane Stadium, in Nelspruit, on Sunday.
Mkhonza said he was spoilt for choice with a squad of 21 which would be trimmed to 18 after the weekend. The changes to the squad would be for another friendly against Zimbabwe on June 15 in Daveyton.
"Preparations for the encounter against Mozambique this coming Sunday are well underway and looking at the players' commitment, I must say I am very impressed," Mkhonza said on Wednesday.
"That is why it is going to be difficult to drop certain players and have the final 18 players that will travel back to Johannesburg for the match against Zimbabwe."
Mkhonza said he had different tactics on his mind for the Mozambique game.
"We are now looking at trying out new combinations. We are also working on the players' tactical awareness on the field because this will be crucial in our game against Mozambique."
There were no injury concerns, according to the coach.
"Apart from a bit of fatigue following a long journey from Johannesburg, there are no injuries and the players have recovered well after travelling a long distance."
Nelisiwe Mchunu, who is among the new additions to the squad, was relishing the opportunity to represent her country.
"It is an honour to be among some of the players who I always idolised like Amanda Dlamini and "China" (Gabisile Hlumbane)," said Mchunu.
"These are players I have always looked up to in football. It is really exciting to be here."
