Left-back Karabo Dhlamini echoed her teammate Biyana's statement, insisting they don't want to focus on what they stand to earn if they happen to break their Wafcon hoodoo. “Money is the last thing we think about. Even in camp we don't talk about the bonuses because that's not important at this stage,” Dhlamini said.
“Our aim is to win the cup and make the country proud. The bonuses will come after doing the job, so there's no need for us to dwell on that.”
Goalkeeper Andile Dlamini reiterated that they are not counting their chickens before they hatch. “We have a big game to play [referring to the final]. All the talks should be about nothing else. We really don't see the need to have a discussion about the bonuses because it's something we don't think about at all,” Dlamini said.
Dhlamini attributed camaraderie, among other things, to their splendid Wafcon campaign. “We're like a family. We look after each other. That has helped us to be here [in the final] today. We are also a hard-working team, so I think we wouldn't have reached the final if it wasn't for our hard work,” she said.
