Besides Ndoro, foreign players are dominating the scoring charts in the PSL. Knowledge Musona (8), Atusaye Nyondo (7), Robert Ng'ambi (7), Kingston Nkhatha (6), Hellings Mhango (6) are joined by several other foreigners on four or five goals each.

Yesterday we wrote a story about how poorly South African strikers are performing in the Premiership – READ: 'SA strikers make keepers look good' – so it makes sense that most of the goals are coming from the boots of our African neighbours.

Earlier this year KickOff.com revealed that out of 499 players registered in the PSL, 106 players (20 percent) are of foreign descent – READ: Parreira says foreigners harming Bafana – making the fact that foreigners are scoring more goals than South Africans look even worse.
