While the national Under-23 squad face a tough match against Ghana in their All Africa Games (AAG's) match in Algiers today, Banyana Banyana appear to have what it takes to beat Ethiopia on Sunday.

The two national teams registered contrasting results in their opening matches of the AAG this week and will be hoping to secure their first win in their second encounters of the tournament.

Steve Komphela's side were beaten 2-1 by Tunisia on Tuesday while Banyana Banyana held their nemeses Nigerians to a 2-all draw on Monday.

Ghana will also go for broke to save face after losing 0-1 to Cameroon in their opener.

Banyana Banyana, on the other hand, should have been inspired for stealing a point against Nigeria in their 2-2 draw. August Makalakalane's charges will want nothing but revenge against the Ethiopians who embarrassed them at home when they beat them 3-1 in the African Women Championships in 2004.
