Phete Joins Vitoria

The former Stars of Africa academy player moved to NFD side Milano in 2013, helping them reach the PSL play-offs in 2014, before joining Guimaraes at the beginning of the season.

Phete admits it's a dream of his to play in the Champions League and is hoping that can come true in the next three years.

"In the next three years, I'd like to see myself playing in the UEFA Champions League or in England," he told Soccer Laduma. 

"It's also every player's dream to represent the national team, so I'm going to work very hard to make sure that I impress the coaches back home."

The 21-year-old also touched on how he got nicknamed after former Brazil and AC Milan legend Cafu.

"Ha ha ha! I think I was given the nickname when I was still young and playing in the streets," he added.

"The senior guys started calling me 'Cafu' because I was playing right back and they said my style of play was similar to that of the Brazilian legend."
