Farrah Francis picks five women to look out for during the World Cup who know more about soccer than most men do!

1
Girl on the rise: Mpho Maboi
Supersport
DSTV
Maboi has risen through the ranks over the years to take on the big boys at SuperSport. The girl knows the difference between kick-off and offside and has men all around the country eating out of the palm of her hand with her devilish grin. Maboi is ­slowly ­becoming the do-it-all chick with her successful radio spot on Yfm.

Sex kitten: Charlotte Jackson
Sky Sports News
DSTV
Jackson could turn any girl green with envy with her  perfect body, hair and sparkly blue eyes. Names like Christiano Ronaldo and José  Mourinho roll off her tongue with ease. The blonde can sing, too, as she proved when she appeared on a UK TV channel with singer Tony Christie.

The bad girl turned good: Romy Titus
Sportswrap
SABC 2
Romy Titus rose to promise for all the wrong reasons initially when she dated former shock jock Bad Boy?T. But she carved a name for herself in the ­industry by becoming one of the first women to present sports on local TV. In 2008 she was awarded Best News Anchor at the SABC News Awards and  she continues to grow.

4
The friend: Carol Manana
Laduma
SABC1
Manana’s most ­impressive presenting gig by far was the World Cup draw which was broadcast to the world. She has since hosted the PSL Awards and continues to make strides as a ­co-presenter on Laduma where she’s on the panel with ­soccer experts such as Marks Maponyane and OG Molefe.

5
The cutie: Kate Giles
CNN
DSTV
Kate Giles has an on-tap approach to the world of sports and would probably be able to tell you about any sport from baseball to badmington. She manages to convey sports news that is accessible. Giles has ­interviewed everyone from Shane Warne to Sir Jackie Stewart. She is fluent in  three languages – and isn’t bad to look at either, guys!
