Phil Masinga, former South Africa and Leeds United star, dies at 49

South African legend Phil Masinga has passed away from "a cancer related disease," the nation's football association has announced.

South African Football Association president Danny Jordan said he was "gutted" to lose "a loyal servant" of the game in the country.

"We have lost a giant of South African Football, this is a sad day for our football," Jordan said on the SAFA website. "I am really gutted. I saw him last Sunday before I flew to Dakar and although he was not feeling well, he was...

Nigeria edge South Africa for 11th African women's title

Nigeria needed penalties to claim the 2018 Africa Women Cup of Nations championship over South Africa, after the match ended 0-0 on Saturday.

Goalkeeper Tochukwu Oluehi was the hero of the day, saving Houston Dash midfielder Linda Motlhalo's effort from the spot to hand her side the trophy in Accra, Ghana.

However, Nigerian fans, spoiled by the halcyon days of the Super Falcons blowing away everything in their path, are having none of that, suggesting that other countries have closed the...

World Cup-bound Banyana made sure to 'get the job done' - Ellis

South Africa head coach Des Ellis says they were not going to risk missing out on a place at the FIFA Women's World Cup in France next year by facing Mali unprepared.

Banyana Banyana completed a dominant 2-0 victory over Mali on Tuesday to secure a place in the Africa Women Cup of Nations final against Nigeria on Saturday, but more importantly secured their first-ever qualification for the World Cup.

Banyana cruised into the AWCON final with greater dominance than the scoreline suggests, giving...
