Kgatlana Named Player Of The Week


Kgatlana was the difference in a match between Louisville and Portland Thorns after netting the winning goal in the second half.

After her fine performance, the 27-year old was already named Player Of The Match.

It was a historic win for Louisville as they beat Thorns, who are the reigning champions and cutrent log leaders, for the very first time in club’s history.

This win kept Kgatlana’s side into the contention for the play-offs with four games to go.

Three days after the big goal, the Banyana star has been named National Women’s Soccer League Player Of The Week after winning the voting with 35%, beating second-placed Jasmyne Spencer of Angel City who had 27%.

The former University Of Western Cape forward is expected to be named in the Banyana squad that will face four-time FIFA Women’s World Cup champions United States later this month in two friendly matches.
