SA Football Players Abroad

It's always fascinating to witness South African Football players playing their trade abroad as they raise the South African flag up high. Whenever and where ever they get featured we will always celebrate their exploits as we mention their names in our corners. Whether it's men or women we will continue to represent our players and wish them well as they have become ambassadors of South African football and the ambassadors of the country entirely.

We will first start by celebrating our ladies in football, and truth be told Banyana Banyana players have done exceptionally well for themselves as they are playing for big clubs from across Europe, and this is something that will definitely have a positive impact on the team as they will be playing competitively. After representing Banyana Banyana at the Aisha Buhari Cup in Nigeria, the ladies were featured in their respective clubs and they made a positive impact consecutively.

Starting off with the 24 year old Thembi Kgatlana who plays for Atletico Madrid, the Banyana international player was introduced in this match on the second half as she was introduced on the 65th minute for the Spanish side in a league encounter, Atletico Madrid went on to win this match by 3-0. Ever since she joined Athletico Madrid from Eibar the South African sensational player is yet to score a goal for the Madrid side, and sooner than later she will be hoping to be one of the impact players for the Spanish team.

Moving away from Spain to Sweden as we look at Hilda Magaia and Linda Motlhalo as they have been playing for their respective teams in the Swedish Women's division. Hilda Magaia's side Moron FC were beaten 2-0 by Kalmar FC, and while looking at the 22 year old Banyana star Linda Motlhalo she was featured for the entire match for Djurgarden as they walked away with a 2-1 victory against Hammarby FC.
