Jermaine Seoposenwe set for maiden final in Mexico

Banyana Banyana forward Jermaine Seoposenwe is gearing herself up for the biggest match of her career since her arrival in Mexico.

The Capetonian has been a colossal figure for FC Monterrey, whom she helped reach the final of the Clausura 2024 Play-offs to determine the league champions in the Liga MX Femenil.

They beat Pachuca 4-2 in the second leg, winning 6-2 on aggregate to set up a mouth-watering clash against Club America in the final, with the first leg set for Friday, 24 May, and the reverse fixture to take place on Monday, 27 May.

This will be Seoposenwe’s first appearance in the Liga MX Femenil final since her arrival in Mexico two years ago – the closest she came to the trophy was last season with her former employers, FC Juarez, who lost in the quarter-finals.

FC Monterrey are in their sixth final but have only lifted the trophy twice – the last time was three years ago when they beat bitter rivals and neighbours UANL Tigres.

Seoposenwe has enjoyed a stellar season in comparison to her fellow countrywoman currently based in Mexico, leading the scoring among the quartet with eight strikes in the regular season and one in the play-offs.

Thembi Kgatlana appeared on the scoresheet six times for Tigres, who bombed out of the semi-finals following a 3-2 aggregate defeat to Pachuca, while Sinoxolo Cesane (5) and Hilda Magaia (4) have also contributed for Mazatlan Femenil.

The 30-year-old is now standing at the gates of glory for her first piece of silverware since signing up to the Liga MX Femenil.
