The Best XI were selected to start in a 4-3-3 formation, and Ebi was named alongside Banyana captain Janine Van Wyk and her teammate Lebohang Ramalepe, with Cameroon’s Claudine Tcheno completing the back four.


Meanwhile, Asisat Oshoala, who scored three goals in the tournament was picked as a substitute, whilst Mali’s Bassira Toure, who managed only two goals for Les Aiglonnes was named as one of three attackers.
