Mexican Girls Football club has since the beginning of the season been terrorizing opponents in the Kweneng Regional Football Association (KRFA) women’s league as they aim to retain their title.
While the whole team has been impressive, it is however the names of the team’s attacking trio of Segakolodi Nunuberry Didukanyane, Esa Galekhutle and Keitumetse ‘Ben 10′ Dithebe which have been on everyone’s lips.
The attacking triumvirate is on top form and scoring goals for fun. Between them, they have so far netted a combined 62 goals this season alone.
Leading the pack is the diminutive Didukanyane, who has 22 goals to her name, while Dithebe and Galekhutle have 20 each.
The youngsters are a product of Oaitse Moeti who is the team’s coach.
Asked on how he feels about the youthful trio’s exploits in front of the goalposts, Moeti had this to say: “This is a blessing in disguise; we always try by all means as a team to empower each other, such that an individual delivers to the fullest of their talent.”
He added that this is good for the team as it shows its growth. He said “This shows that our teachings as the technical team are being understood and followed, also it shows that as a team we are growing.”
“Our attacking plan is being executed well hence the results of the team topping the log with twenty six points. We are not just relying on one person to score goals for us. We encourage all team players to actively participate and contribute immensely to scoring,” he noted.
The Mexican coach however said while impressed with the trio’s performances, he is hopeful their goal scoring exploits would not make them big headed.
“We instill team spirit, discipline and cooperation on the girls hence their outstanding performance. In football it is a challenging situation to be leading the top goal scorer’s board, and we do not want selfishness to creep in,” Moeti opined.
Asked on what the future holds for his attacking trio, Moeti said: “These girls love football, they are senior players despite being young age wise, coincidentally Sega and Esa are the captains of the team, this shows that they are portraying a good example for their fellow team mates to follow.”
“My dream is to look for opportunities outside the country for them, we are going exploitative to what seems to be opportunities for their breakthrough in their career paths,” he added.
