Banyana Banyana coach Desiree Ellis maintained her firm stance on the continued exclusion of Mamelodi Sundowns Ladies striker Andisiwe Mgcoyi, saying the .ers at her disposal can do the job.

Mgcoyi was the most notable omission in the 26-.er squad for the African Women’s Cup of Nations that starts in Morocco next month.

Mgcoyi hasn’t featured in the national teams for a while despite her excellent form for her club at local and continental level.

Ellis, who has picked six forwards in her World Cup group, said many other .ers could have made the squad.

“I would expect you to ask a question about the squad, but as I have said before, t. are a lot of .ers who have been in the squad,” Ellis said.

Another .er missing, but for different reasons, is JWV FC forward Gabriela Salgado.

The 24-year-old suffered a freak collarbone injury in a Hollywoodbets Super League game and that ruled her out of the tournament.

Ellis said Salgado’s all-round presence in the team will be missed.

“Gabby hasn’t just grown in leaps and bounds for Banyana, but for her club as well,” Ellis said.

“T.’s nothing you couldn’t ask of Gabby and she’d deliver. She’s almost a five-in-one .er and excels in any department that she’s put in.

“The timing of her injury, the 90th-minute, was such a freakish one, but that’s the nature of sport and could have been the result of fatigue.
