On her performances so far in the competition, Banda said: “I am very proud of myself and the team because without them I can’t score so I just want to say thank you to my teammates for the help that they are giving me.
“Playing in the stadium where they are fans gives more confidence; the supporters are the 12th player in the stadium so it gives morale.”
