Thembi Kgatlana has returned to Racing Louisville FC after her impressive performance leading Banyana Banyana to the FIFA Women’s World Cup round of 16.
Her contributions in the group stage, including the crucial game-winning goal, helped secure South Africa’s first-ever appearance in the World Cup knockout stage.
Kgatlana’s availability for selection in the upcoming match is a positive development for Racing Louisville FC.
The team’s match against NJ/NY Gotham at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey holds significance as it marks the beginning of Louisville’s final six regular-season matches.
With the team currently four points away from a playoff spot, this is an important phase for them as they aim to secure a playoff position for the first time in the club’s history.
Kgatlana’s presence has been felt since her return from a torn Achilles tendon in early May. With a goal and an assist in 10 appearances across all competitions, she has shown her value on the field. Notably, her first goal in a Racing jersey was in the 2-0 victory over Gotham on June 18.
