First Zimbabwean womens’ player to ply her trade in a European league
Zimbabwe women’s national soccer team striker Rutendo Makore is on the brink of making history by becoming the first Zimbabwean player to ply her trade in a top flight European league. Women’s football in Zimbabwe is in a historic moment with the departure of Mighty Warriors and Black Rhinos Queens goal getter Makore, who is headed for Spanish Laliga side Sporting Club de Heulva.
Arguably one of the finest strikers in women’s football, Makore this Tuesday (tomorrow) departs for Spain in what will be a historic moment for Zimbabwean football.
She will be out on loan for a six month period and will be hoping to impress.
The bustling forward said the move is a dream come true.
Black Rhinos secretary said Makore’s departure for Spain is not only a plus for the Queens but for women’s football in particular.
Makore was spotted by scouts at the just ended COSAFA Cup in Bulawayo were she was on a goal harvesting spree, netting ten times.
She becomes the first Zimbabwean export in women’s football to ply her trade in Europe.
