Kgatlana scores in Chinese Super League debut

Banyana Banyana striker Thembi Kgatlana scored her first league goal for Beijing BG Phoenix in the Chinese Women’s League at the weekend, though they suffered a narrow 3-2 defeat to Jiangsu Suning.

Kgatlana and her Banyana teammate Linda Motlhalo both penned one-year deals with the Chinese Women’s League outfit back in February after parting ways with Houston Dash in the USA.

The reigning African Women’s Player of the Year has hit the ground running since her big-money move from the US, and will be looking to hit the back of the net more often as the league campaign progresses.
