Two of Mamelodi Sundowns’ players have made it into the CAF team of the week after the side’s emphatic victory over Algerian side CR Belouizdad in the Champions League.
Sundowns cruised to a 5-1 victory at Benjamin Mkapa Stadium in Tanzania, the neutral venue which was used for the group B tie after the Brazilians were denied entry into Algeria due to concerns of COVID-19 restrictions.
Reigning PSL Footballer of the Season Themba Zwane bagged a brace, while Kermit Erasmus, Peter Shalulile and Lebohang Maboe also go their names on the scoresheet.
Both Zwane and Erasmus made it into the team of the week, which also features former Sundowns attacker Luis Miquissone, who is in fine form for Tanzanian outfit Simba SC.
Zwane and Erasmus are amongst the top scorers in the group stages, with two goals each. Wydad Casablanca's Ayoub El Kaabi and AS Vita's Obed Mukokiani have also bagged two goals each.
Sundowns, meanwhile, are back in Johannesburg after their clash on Sunday and will leave for Lubumbashi on Wednesday, March 3. They take on five-time African champions TP Mazembe on Saturday.
Sundowns have six points in their first two matches, while Mazembe have only two points after their draws against Belouizdad and Al Hilal.
