Banyana Banyana star continues hot streak in Mexico

Banyana Banyana frontwoman Jermaine Seoposenwe continued with her hot streak in Mexico, scoring for FC Monterrey in a Clausura 2024 Liga MX match on Tuesday morning.

Monterrey got the better of Pumas de la UNAM with a 1-0 scoreline in the second leg of the quarter-finals. The game took place at the BBVA Stadium.

As a result, Seoposenwe’s side progressed to the tournament’s semi-finals with a 3-0 win over Pumas on aggregate. Monterrey will now face Pachuca Femenil in the semi-finals of the 2024 Clausura tournament.

Seoposenwe has had a decent run of form for her side, scoring 13 goals in 26 appearances across all competitions.


Seoposenwe’s Monterrey started the game on a front foot, aiming to break the deadlock early in the math. However, the side managed to score in the second half when the Banyana star fired home the winning goal.

Nicole Pérez’s nicely taken corner kick found the talented goalscorer Seoposenwe, who did not make a mistake as she found the back of the net with a beautiful header. Seoposenwe’s solo goal was scored in the 67th minute of the showdown.

In the first half of the showpiece, Christina Burkenroad’s goal was disallowed for offside after she received a pass filtered by the Cape Town-born footballer, Seoposenwe.

Monterrey extended their unbeaten run record in the cup tournament, the Regular Phase and Liguilla. They have gone 12 matches without conceding a goal.


Given Seoposenwe’s stellar performances in Mexico, it will be hard for Dr Desiree Ellis not to include her in the Banyana squad. Banyana will play two away international friendly matches against Senegal in the upcoming FIFA break.

South Africa will face Senegal on 31 May and on 4 June 2024. The final 23-player squad for the away international friendlies against the West African nation will be announced in due course.
