Burkina Faso star shines alongside Banyana duo in Belarus


Belarus top flight side Dinamo Minsk(Women) ran riot on Wednesday in a league encounter with Dnepr Mogilez thrashing the club 15-0 to remind their rivals of their capabilities in front of goal and to extend their dominance in the league.

Burkina Faso striker Salimata Simpore scored five goals in the game where she eventually scooped the Woman of the Match award with her performance.

Banyana Banyana right back Lebogang Ramalepe scored one goal and provided three assists while her compatriot Rhoda Mulaudzi scored a brace with Dinamo-BSUPC goin on to close off with a 15-0 humiliation of their opponents.

The African trio alongside other African players Claudia Dabda and Bambanani Mbane were returning from a well deserved two-week break following a historic Belarusian Women’s Cup triumph over rivals Minsk on August 31.

The Africans continued from where they left off before the short holiday as they inspired Dinamo Minsk to their biggest league win of the season in fine fashion.

With this brace Mulaudzi has now scored three goals in three matches for Minsk with Ramalepe scoring one and 5 assists so far since their arrival in Belarus from South Africa.

Although she never made it off the bench Mbane will be happy to be back on the pitch after months on the sidelines due to an injury. She will now have to fight for her place on the team to ensure that she returns to the starting XI once again as it was before the injury blow.

This massive win for Dinamo Minsk opens up a 12-point gap between themselves and second placed Minsk, their home town rivals.
