Thembi Kgatlana (RSA)
Leading the line for South Africa this summer is Thembi Kgatlana, the pacey forward who recently sealed a move to Chinese club Beijing BG Phoenix F.C. Last year she won a host of prestigious awards, including CAF Women’s Player Of The Year, CAF Goal Of The Year and the best player accolade at the African Women’s Cup Of Nations. A cheeky personality off the pitch, always smiling and having a laugh, Thembi is the poster girl for the women’s game in South African and well worth a follow on social.
