Botswana's football sensation, Refilwe 'Seven' Tholakele, has surged into the top three nominations for the prestigious CAF Interclub Player of the Year Women Award.

Seven faces formidable competition from her teammate, Lebohang Malepe of South Africa, and another strong contender, Fatima Taganaout from Morocco. Tholakele distinguished herself with a remarkable performance in the Women's Champions League tournament, scoring five crucial goals. Her outstanding contributions propelled Sundowns to secure the CAF Champions League trophy for the second time in its history, earning her the coveted Golden Boot Award. Notably, Tholakele is also in the running for the Goal of the Year award, making her one of the few female athletes nominated alongside male counterparts across Africa.

Her nomination stems from a brilliant goal scored during the CAF Champions League tournament, where Sundowns emerged victorious against Sporting Club Casablanca. The highly anticipated CAF awards ceremony is scheduled for December 11 with Morocco once again hosting the event in Marrakech. Tholakele's remarkable achievements and dual nominations emphasise her prominence on the continental football stage.
