“If anybody has seen this car, it’s a blue Polo Golf – that is my car,” she says.

Despite the widespread support and solidarity shown by fans and supporters in response to the video, Portia Modise’s car has yet to be located.

Modise, who started her international career at the age of 16 in 2000, holds a record number of appearances for Banyana Banyana.

Her achievements include a nomination for the FIFA Player of the Year award in 2005, and a subsequent Player of the Tournament accolade at the African Women’s Championship the following year.

Currently, Modise has transitioned into coaching, continuing to contribute to football beyond her illustrious playing career.
