Throwback Thursday

Kasi Flava – When Rakhale Joined Neymar & Ronaldo As Five Star Skillers

Thabo Rakhale is known to be one of the most skilful players of his generation and with that in mind,  we throw it back to the time when Jomo was the only South African player with a five-star skill rating on FIFA. Check it out!

What’s the story?

The latest edition of the popular football video game FIFA will be released soon, with its developers recently releasing the player ratings to get fans amped up about the new instalment.

  

Mzansi Player Ratings

When it comes to Mzansi players, FIFARatings.com showcased the South African footballer’s ratings on FIFA22, with Al Ahly attacker Percy Tau topping the charts with an overall rating of 75. Other than Tau in recent seasons, the likes of Itumeleng Khune, Bongani Zungu and Keagan Dolly have been popular SA players on the game.

That being said, Rakhale has been the only South African player to receive a five-star skill rating on FIFA. Having the attribute means that the player has the ability to pull off any trick on the game, as Jomo shared the tag with stars such as Neymar, Cristiano Ronaldo and Paul Pogba.

  

Skill Star

Although no longer part of recent versions of the game, fans had fun with Rakhale on FIFA17 & 18, where they put his five-star skills to the test with Orlando Pirates.

At the time, the former Pirates man boasts an overall rating of 70, with his pace and dribbling being his strongest asset of 75 and 74 respectively.
