South Africa went 2 - 1 down against third-ranked Sweden in their first match at this year's Women's Soccer World Cup in Wellington, New Zealand on Sunday.

It was heartache for Banyana Banyana as they conceded a 90th-minute goal.

Banyana took the lead early in the second half through striker Hildah Magaia.

Fridolina Rolfo found a fortunate equalizer before Amanda Ilestedt headed in from a corner.

The two teams are in Group G, along with Argentina and Italy.

Between these teams, the 54the ranked South Africans, current Afcon champions, are the lowest-ranked in the group.
