For a footballer from Keetmanshoop, thriving in Spain's premier division is as rare as a rainy day in the hot Namib Desert, but Zenatha Coleman is no ordinary footballer and has proven that she has what it takes to brush shoulders with the best in the world.

The 27-year-old Coleman is currently Namibia's sole female representative in a European top-flight team and has had an extraordinary journey few would have anticipated.

Queen of horsepower

The nimble-footed Namibian player joined the Sevilla squad to add more firepower to the club and has certainly done that, as she continues to hog headlines in the Spanish women premier league with her football flair, and thus proving that Namibia can produce quality footballers if given the opportunity.

She has played 33 games in her first season with the club and has scored seven goals.

In those matches she started 22 of them, including the League and Copa, where she scored two goals in the thriller against club Atlético Madrid at the Jesús Navas stadium, as well as one goal in the derby against Real Betis.

Besides demonstrating her skills on the pitch in Spain, Coleman can be seen in her home country on billboards advertising one of the leading local beer brands, Tafel Lager.

Promising more hard work

In a Twitter statement, the forward said she was 'happy to be staying with the club for two more years and excited to continue contributing to the team.

She added that it is very important to strive for the same form and ambition that is expected from a club as big as Sevilla, and expressed her desire to continue helping her teammates by contributing goals and hard work.

Speaking about the season that has just ended, she said it was long and hard. Sevilla ended eighth on the log, with Barcelona taking the trophy, Real Madrid in second place and Levante in third.

Former national team coach Mammie Kasaona said she was super proud of Coleman’s achievements.

“I’m her number one supporter and I’m very glad that her contract was extended. With no doubt she is our most talented player. Very hardworking and Godfearing. I wish her all the best and may God continue to open more doors for her,” she said.
