Coach Desiree Ellis on Monday announced his final 23-man South Africa squad for the 2022 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations, with regular suspects like Andile Dlamini, Refiloe Jane and Lebohang Ramalepe.

Spain-based Kholosa Biyana made the cut alongside JVW’s Janine Van Wyk and Djurgadens midfielder Linda Motlhalo.

Also making the shortlist is Dinamo Minsk defender Lebohang Ramalepe, Tut’s Nomvula Kgoale alongside Sibuelele Holweni who represents Sophakama/HPC.

The Southern African side are making their 13th appearance in the biennial African tournament, and they would be gunning to lift the diadem for the first time ever.

They finished as runners-up at the last outing – losing to eventual winners Super Falcons in a thrilling penalty shoot-out.
