Though they are in full control of their World Cup qualifying campaign, South Africa's Under-20 women's team have no time to rest on their laurels.

After an impressive 3-1 victory over Mozambique in Maputo on Saturday, Anna Monate's team is looking forward to repeating the performance and form so far against the tougher Mauritius and later the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The result ensures Basetsana go through 7-1 on aggregate, after they had won the home leg 4-0 at the Caledonian Stadium in Tshwane two weeks ago.

"We are firmly on our way if we continue playing like this. We played very well. But we are already looking ahead, with a couple of friendlies already in the pipeline. I have said it before, we are not taking any chances this time," team manager Fran Hilton-Smith said.
