The 25-year-old scored the all-important goal to inspire the Tanzanian giants to a 1-0 win over Al Ahly in their CAFCL group stage match last week.

Following his impressive efforts, the Mozambican has now been named the best player of the week by Africa's football governing body.

Miquissone was on Sundowns' books as recently as January 2020, after joining the club in January 2018 from UD Songo.
