South Africa's national under-17 women squad are currently in Spain in preparation for the upcoming 2018 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup.

Bantwana qualified for the world showpiece for only the second time this year, following a 6-1 aggregate win over Morocco in February.

Simphiwe Dludlu's troops will come up against Brazil, Japan and Mexico in Uruguay. The World Cup will-kick in Montevideo on the 13th of November later this year.

In preparation for the World Cup, Bantwana jetted off to Valencia Spain earlier this month. The trip stems from a partnership between the South Africa Football Association (SAFA) and LaLiga Santander.

Bantwana beat UD Levante women's Under-17 side 4-2 and will next face Valencia women's Under-20s today before returning to South Africa on Saturday.
