Soccer Player

Lebohang Mokoena represents all that is good and promising about the future of South African football.

Due to turn 20 this September, Lebohang is the most outstanding member of a generation of Orlando Pirates players who have come through the development programme and now form the core of its. first team. He has played for the Under-17, Under-20 and Under-23 national teams. He finally, and deservedly broke through the national team ranks last June in a memorable victory over Mexico.

He carries on his shoulders the hopes of Orlando Pirates over the next few seasons as well those of a nation at the Beijing Olympics and the 2010 World Cup.
