Shalulile Among Continents Finest Performers

Mamelodi Sundowns striker Peter Shalilile was named in the match week three CAF Champions League Team of the Week.

The Namibia international striker netted the opening goal in the 2-2 draw against Al Ahly as they maintained their unbeaten run in the competition this season.

Sundowns moved to seven points with two wins and the draw in Cairo, sitting pretty at the summit and six points ahead of Ahly – who have a game in hand.

Al Hilal, who are in second with six points from three games have DR Congo sensation Makabi Glody Lillepo in the Team of the Week after two sensational goals in their 2-1 win over Coton Sport.

It’s likely a group that will go down to the wire, as the record ten-time African champions look to qualify for the knockout stages ahead of Hilal or Sundowns this season.

Team of the Week in full:

  • Farid Ouédraogo (AS Vita)
  • Mustafa Karshoum (Al Merrikh)
  • Henock Inonga Baka (Simba)
  • Jamal Harkass (Raja)
  • Rayed Bouchniba (Esperance)
  • Mohamed Ben Romdhane (Esperance)
  • Lema Mabidi (AS Vita)
  • Hussein El Shahat (Al Ahly)
  • Paulo Sérgio (Al Merrikh)
  • Glody Lillepo (Al Hilal)
  • Peter Shalulile (Mamelodi Sundowns)
