15 May 2014Banyana Banyana captain and central defender Janine van Wyk looks set to return from injury and claim her place in the starting eleven for a friendly match against Ghana at the Dobsonville Stadium in Soweto on Sunday.Van Wyk has been sidelined for almost three months because of a collateral knee ligament strain, which forced her to miss last month’s 2-2 draw with Zimbabwe at the same venue.‘It feels really good to be back’“It’s the first time I am training with the team again, and it feels really good to be back. I have been out for 13 weeks without playing football and doing rehabilitation,” Van Wyk said in a statement on Wednesday.“There are still a few areas I need to work on and get the injury out of my mind. But I am sure I will be ready in the next couple of days.”‘A much tougher opponent than Zimbabwe’Focusing on the challenge awaiting Banyana Banyana on Sunday, she added: “I cannot wait to take the field against Ghana, which I believe will be a much tougher opponent than Zimbabwe. They are more physical, but I think we can compete with them.“The last time we faced the Black Queens, we were able to pip them through a penalty shootout and we are looking to do one better for the fans by defeating them within the allotted 90 minutes,” she concluded.The Sasol-sponsored South African national women’s team is preparing for their forthcoming African Women’s Championship qualifying match against the Comoros at the end of the month, and coach Vera Pauw is impressed with the team’s performance thus far. She believes that the match against Ghana will assist in building a strong team.‘I am impressed’“Preparations are going well,” she said. “We have only had three training sessions together. We had the first explosive training session yesterday, to gain more power and after that we had game time. I am impressed by what I saw.”Looking at lessons learnt in her charges’ last outing, Pauw said: “We have reviewed the previous match against Zimbabwe and feel that we made it easy for them. It was not the individual mistakes that were a concern, but the whole team lacked cohesion in the first 45 minutes.“The match against Ghana could not have come at a better time as we look to intensify preparations ahead of the African Women’s Championship qualifiers against [the] Comoros,” she added.Injury concernDefender Letago Madiba, who plies her trade for Tshwane University of Technology in the Sasol League, remains the only injury concern for the team ahead of the match after sustaining a knee injury during training on Wednesday.Sunday’s match kicks off at 15:00.SAinfo reporter and South African Football Association

I just need to prove to myself that I deserved it and that I’m not just any rookie.”Dela Cruz, who also saw action during the Asian School Games in Singapore in 2017, although admitting to losing her focus in some parts of the game, certainly lived up to that promise in just her first game in the UAAP and helped seniors Desiree Cheng and May Luna.“I really need to be confident in everything that I do. I feel like I get caught in the moment too much and they remind me to snap out of it.”Despite dela Cruz’s impressive debut, de Jesus said her prized recruit is just scratching the surface.“As a rookie, I see that her performance is only 60 percent of what she can do and I expected that because everything is new to her like the huge crowd and the noise,” de Jesus said.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ Joe Gibbs dedicates Daytona 500 victory to late son Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles01:00Chief Justice Peralta on upcoming UAAP game: UP has no match against UST02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games02:11Trump awards medals to Jon Voight, Alison Krauss Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Share Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg has named Houston lawyer John Raley to review the case of former Texas death row inmate Alfred Dewayne Brown to determine if Brown is actually innocent of the shooting death of a Houston police officer and eligible for nearly $2 million in state compensation.Brown was freed in 2015 after spending a decade on death row for the 2003 slaying of Officer Charles Clark during a robbery of a check-cashing store. Brown insisted he wasn’t involved. The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals granted him a new trial, ruling his rights were violated because a detective failed to turn over telephone records that could have aided his defense.The previous district attorney, Devon Anderson, dropped charges but declined to pursue Brown’s actual innocence claim.
