Soccer team wins important award – level 3

02-08-2022 07:00

Since 2018, South Africa’s women’s soccer team finished as runner-up five times at the Women’s Africa Cup of Nations, but this year, team Bafana Bafana (“the women”) won its first title against the home country Morocco.

Player Hilda Magaya scored two times in an eight-minute timeframe to gain the 2-1 victory.

The win also allowed the team to go to the 2023 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.  One player said she was excited to celebrate with South Africans who had recently experienced many problems.

Hundreds of happy fans greeted the champions as they arrived to celebrate their historic win with President Cyril Ramaphosa. The president said that the team promised to return the cup home and they brought it where it belongs.

Difficult words: title (a type of sport award), promise to return home (to say you will bring something back to a home, country, or other place), bring where it belongs (to bring a thing to a place or a people who need the thing).
