Banyana Banyana Crowned Champions of Africa

Champions of Africa!!! This Saturday, Banyana Banyana broke their long-standing curse this Saturday and won their first continental title at the 2022 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations (WAFCON), edging host nation Morocco 2-1.

As partners to Janine, the Forwardzone Group is immensely proud of her sharing in Banyana Banyana’s wonderful moment in Morocco and finally lifting that trophy they worked so hard for. The defender, having capped more than 180 times for her country, the most by any South African footballer by some stretch has been a mainstay of the team for 17 years; a remarkable record and testament to the Banyana captain’s grit and hunger through the years.

As the World Cup beckons down under next year, Forwardzone continues to support Janine’s ambition of competing at a second edition and extending her record as the most capped footballer – male or female – in her country’s history.
