SOUTH AFRICA, CAMEROON TO CONTEST FINAL OF COSAFA CUP ON SATURDAY

PORT ELIZABETH-- Hosts South Africa and invitational side Cameroon will meet in the final of this year's Cosafa Women's Championship here Port Elizabeth on Saturday.

Defending champions Banyana Banyana booked their place in the final of the tounament for member countries of the Council of Southern Africa Football Associations )Cosafa) after beating Uganda 2-0l, while Cameroon, one of two non-Cosafa teams invited to this year's competition, emerged 1-0 winners over Zambia at Wolfson Stadium here Thursday.

However, Desiree Ellis, the coach of the South African national women's football team, is not happy with her side's performance and believes they could have done better.

We were not at our best today. We gave away a lot of unnecessary possession. We wasted a lot of opportunities. We made the wrong decisions when we had many players in good positions. But we knew this was a semi-final. It will get to the players' minds. We tried to keep them cool.

Meanwhile, Uganda Coach Faridah Bulega says she is proud of her team although they were beaten. One of objectives was to come out of the groups to test ourselves against teams like South Africa. For us, we have achieved. South Africa is a big team compared us."
