She might have just arrived in July at SC Braga, but the coach Miguel Santos has already built the style of play of the Portuguese club around Banyana Banyana midfielder Jermaine Seoposenwe who is hitting all the right gears in Portugal at the moment.
The attacking midfielder has claimed a regular starting berth in the team playing all the games for the club this season.
Braga currently sits second in Liga BPI after 7 league games just three points behind Famalicao. Seoposenwe scored her first goal for the club against Valadares just over a week ago, but on Wednesday night she was back in the scoresheet in the Portuguese Cup semi-final against Estoril Praia as Braga booked a date with giants SL Benfica in the final.
The 27-year-old is now in her third club in Europe and it seems she was the missing piece in the puzzle for Santos who gives her the free playmaking role which allows her to come from deep to initiate team moves while also using her pace to make runs into the box.
Yesterday she scored from a breaking run from the wing which was met by a nicely weighed through ball – she made no mistake in front of goal to give Braga the lead after 11 minutes.
The visitors then ran riot as Dolores Silva later converted from the spot and Myra Delgadillo scored a brace as Braga marched on to the big final of the prestigious cup competition.
During her short stint in Spain the Banyana Banyana international struggled to hit the ground running, but at Braga she has fit in like a glove fitting nto a hand.
She has played 90 minutes in almost all the games she has featured in and will now be setting her sights on helping the team regain top spot in the league as they take on Condeixa after the FIFA international break in December.
This season it seems like it will be a two-horse race between Famalicao and SC Braga who are running riot beating all the teams in the division with huge margins, Braga alone have scored 29 goals in their last 6 games in the league – no other team has scored more.
