Banyana captain Refiloe Jane ready for Nigeria Contest

After a lengthy period on sidelines, South Africa women’s senior team captain, Refiloe Jane is back to represent her country on the international scene.

The Sassuolo midfielder has been out after picking up an injury against Argentina during last year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup in New Zealand and Australia.

Despite inclusion in preliminary squad for the third round, still failed to make the cut, denying her opportunity to don national colors again.

In Banyana Banyana first official training in Abuja, Jane was among the three foreign based players that reported for camp on Monday.

An key player in Desiree Ellis roster, her arrival comes at such a crucial stage when they seek to bounce back at Olympic games.

The other overseas-based players were veteran defender Noko Matlou, and Jermaine Seoposenwe.

The visitors lock horns with nine-time Africa champions, Nigeria in the first leg of CAF Women’s Olympic qualifiers this Friday at MKO Abiola Stadium, Abuja
