Have we got a future Banyana Banyana player in our midst? Alexia Lazaridis – who was rewarded for her outstanding display in the MCSportz under-10 tournament that was played in Rustenburg, just maybe a future star.
12 teams participated from different leagues and Alexia, who played for Corinthians was delighted with the award.
"We had an unbelievable tournament and won 5 matches, drew 2 and lost 1," said Alexia whose role model is Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo.
"I was nominated 5 times out of the 7 games I played. My team and their parents were so happy that I won the award and it made me even happier."
Alexia has been playing soccer for two years at Corinthians and as there were no girls team, she immediately stepped up to the plate and competed with the boys.
Everyone at the club is extremely proud of Alexia and we would all collectively like to congratulate her on an outstanding achievement.
