Netball World Cup: South African Captain Rates Uganda Ahead Of Showdown

The battle for a semi-final berth at the Netball World Cup currently going on is heightening as the preliminary stage two matches enter day four at the M&S Bank Arena, in Liverpool- England.

In group G, hosts England and South Africa are leading the race with six points each with huge goal counts on their support.

Uganda comes third with four and will be facing South Africa later on Wednesday night.

Despite the underdog tag that most pundits are tagging on Uganda, the SPAR Proteas –South African team- captain Bongiwe Msomi is not taking her opponents lightly.

She has played Uganda previously and won twice and knows exactly what the team captained by Peace Proscoiva can offer on a good day at work.

“We have Uganda next, and they’re not just another side – they’re a quality side and we’ll have a big game against them, so we are focusing on that,” Msomi said.

She added that: “We have so much respect for all the teams here. It’s game-by-game and we have to be switched on still, because we can’t take anyone for granted – that’s why this tournament is huge this year.”

The top two from the groups will advance to the semi-final stage as the second and third-runners up fall into the classification matches.
