Desiree Ellis has dedicated Banyana Banyana's victory against Nigeria to everyone in South Africa after winning the inaugural 2021 Aisha Buhari Cup.
After South Africa led 3-0 at half-time, Nigeria pulled back two goals in quick succession to ensure a nervy ending for the visitors.
However, Mamello Makhabane scored from the penalty spot after Linda Motlhalo was brought down in the area.
That made the game safe at 4-2 and South Africa played out the remaining minutes to be crowned champions at the Mobolaji Johnson Stadium in Lagos, Nigeria.
"I think if I look back at the game, we were in control most of the time and we played at the tempo we wanted to play and made them play a tempo we wanted them to play," Ellis told SAFA media after the game.
"I felt at times we gave a lot of free kicks away which at times looked dangerous, but we handled that well."
Despite the victory against Nigeria, Ellis remained cautious and urged her players that consistency was important at international level.
"The victory is not just for us here in Nigeria, the victory is for everyone back home and everyone that is involved in women's football," Ellis continued.
"We wanted to test ourselves and we were duly tested. But we need to now be consistent in what we do.
"Nigeria has been consistent for a couple of years. And we must not forget they will be back. We must celebrate tonight because it is worth celebrating."
