Dlamini captioned the national squad for three years before passing over the baton.

Currently, she is involved in YouthX programmes and she is a football analyst.

She speaks to Ray White about how she views failure.

Not qualifying for the World Cup has to be one of those moments for me, it stands out because of the efforts we put in and I think also the game of women's football at the time had wasn't fully established.

Those challenges ultimately build you. I think a defining moment for when I was dropped from the national team, I was very hesitant that I return because it was so painful for me to see that dream disappearing in front of my eyes and I was just so close to scratching the surface.

Amanda Dlamini, Former Banyana Banyana Captain / Football Analyst 

Dlamini said soccer players must tackle the stereotype that they are not educated.
