"WHAT more can I ask for?”

Those were the words of Banyana Banyana striker Rhoda Mulaudzi after securing herself a deal with a Cyprus club.

Mulaudzi, who was part of the Banyana squad at the Fifa Women’s World Cup which  came to an end in France in the past weekend, has joined Apollon Ladies FC in Cyprus.

The Limpopo-born player was on the books of Australian outfit Canberra United, but her contract came to an end just before the World Cup.

Mulaudzi revealed that it all started when she received an inbox of Facebook from the club chairman.

"The vice-president of the club sent me an inbox asking if I was available to join their team," Mulaudzi revealed.

"At first I thought it was a scam, but my faith pushed me to go ahead and probe further, and here I am today seeing another dream come true."

Malaudzi will now become the third SA player to play in the Uefa Women Champions League following the likes of Nompumelelo Nyandeni and Leandra Smeda.

"I'excited about this move, what makes me even happier is that I will be playing in the UEFA Women Champions League which is the second highest level in the game after the World Cup.

"It is a dream dream come true,”she added.

“I am so excited about this move, and I am almost certain it will open doors for other players to come this side. I still don’t believe how it happened.

“I am so happy I don’t even know what to say – this is just a good indication that when God says yes no one can say no.

"He has been really amazing to me – first taking me to Australia, then getting a chance again in the national team, playing in the World Cup and now this, what more can I ask for?”
