The stage is set for an epic COSAFA Women’s Championship 2019 semi-final between Zimbabwe and South Africa today, dubbed by some as ‘the final before the final’.
The two sides, who are arguably the favorites to lift the crown, have been impressive in the tournament, with Banyana Banyana breaking the Mighty Warriors’ 17-year record of most goals in a single game, courtesy of 17-0 thumping of Comoros.
Sithethelelwe Sibanda’s charges have also been equally impressive, scoring 15 goals and only conceeding one their way to the last 4.
Banyana defeated the Mighty Warriors in the inagural final in 2002, but the latter got their revenge in the 2011 final.
The last time they met in the competion was in the 2017 final and Banyana prevailed 2-1.
