South Africa coach Vera Pauw says he is happy to draw Ghana, Cameroon and Algeria in Group B for the 2014 African Women Championships.
Banyana Banyana will be playing Ghana again after losing 1-0 to the Black Queens in a friendly back in May.
They will also face the Indomitable Lioness, a side which beat Nigeria to win bronze at the last tournament in Equatorial Guinea two years.
The Dutchwoman is glad to have avoided old foes Nigeria who are in Group A alongside Zambia, Cote d'Ivoire and Namibia.
â€œI am happy with the draw. I could not have asked for a better outcome. If you want to be a champion, you must be prepared to slag it out against the best,â€ said Pauw in reaction to the draw.
The top three countries will qualify for the Fifa Womenâ€™s World Cup scheduled for Canada next year.
