As it turns out, Linda is not the only soccer player in the family and draws a lineage from her predecessors.

The details of her mother are not yet known to the public, but her father is Johannes Motlhalo.

Johannes didn’t have a son and thought his daughter would never want to play soccer professionally.

He had no idea that his little girl would be on her way to represent her national team and score a goal in the World Cup.

Johannes’ uncle, Joseph “Banks” Setlhodi, managed to make a name for himself in the world of soccer.

Setlhodi was a fantastic goalkeeper for the Kaizer Chiefs. He was nicknamed “Banks” after England No. 1 and 1966 World Cup winner Gordon Banks.

Her father tried following in his uncle’s footsteps, but he never got to make it to a professional level.

He says that to see Linda doing so well now makes him a really proud father.
