Jermaine Seoposenwe, the talented South African forward, showcased her skills once again as she played a crucial role in Monterrey’s 3-1 victory over Club Tijuana in a Mexican women’s league encounter on Friday.

Seoposenwe was instrumental in two of Monterrey’s three goals, helping her team close the gap on the league leaders to just two points.

She initiated the scoring sequence by setting up Nicole Perez for Monterrey’s opener in the eighth minute at the Cancha El Barrial, Santiago.

Despite a spirited response from Club Tijuana, with their captain Daniela Espinoza Arce equalizing in the 28th minute from a free kick, Seoposenwe proved decisive for Monterrey.

She netted Monterrey’s second goal in the 54th minute, converting a cross inside the box to restore her team’s lead.

Monterrey sealed the victory in added time of the second half, with Ana Lucia Martinez Maldonado finding the back of the net to secure a 3-1 win.

Seoposenwe’s stellar performance comes at a crucial time as she gears up for next week’s Paris 2024 Qualifiers first-leg clash against Nigeria.

With seven goals to her name in the league this season, Seoposenwe is in prime form to contribute to South Africa’s quest for Olympic qualification.

Having played a pivotal role in Banyana Banyana’s title-winning campaign at the 2022 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations (WAFCON) in Morocco, Seoposenwe remains a key figure in Desiree Ellis’s squad.

Notably, she scored South Africa’s first goal in their 2-1 victory over the Super Falcons at the 2022 WAFCON.
