Vakhegula Vakhegula (granny granny) were invited to participate at the World Cup's Veterans League Championship,Briefly.co.zalearned.

However, only three members of the team could travel because of financial constraints, according toLimpopo Sports Zone.

The three include two players, 65-year-old Merriam 'Katsanga' Mushwana and 70-year-old Annah 'Tabi' Kgofelo. The third member is their guardian.

They met Mamelodi Sundowns coach, Pitso Mosimane, and visited the South African embassy in Moscow.

The grannies also got a chance to watch the Russia vs Egypt match in St. Petersburg, which ended in a 3-1 victory for the hosts. They will return to South Africa on Friday, 22 June.

According toGood Things Guy, Rebecca Ntsanwisi started the team that has been dubbed "soccer grannies" in 2003.

Her aim was to use it as a form of physical therapy for elderly women. Members of the team are aged between 55 and 84.

Her idea inspired the creation of over 40 more teams for the elderly across South Africa's informal settlements.
