Team of the Week

The Citizen (KZN) - - Latest News -

Had Gas­ton Sirino not re­ceived a red card in the Telkom Knock­out semi­fi­nal against Golden Ar­rows, he would be a strong con­tender for the TKO Player-of-the-Tour­na­ment as he scored five goals and pro­vided two as­sists in the fi­nal, with no one else match­ing his stats. He def­i­nitely makes it into Phakaaathi’s Team-of-the-Tour­na­ment slot­ting in on the right side of at­tack. The strike force con­sists of Ju­das Moseamedi and Mauri­cio Af­fonso who both net­ted in the fi­nal. Moseamedi’s best per­for­mance in the tour­ney is when he sin­gle-hand­edly elim­i­nated Kaizer Chiefs in the semi­fi­nals with his brace be­fore he opened the scor­ing in the fi­nal against Sun­downs. Af­fonso, mean­while, was the match win­ner for

Masan­dawana with his two head­ers enough to hand Downs their first do­mes­tic cup since 2015. Both strik­ers fin­ished the tour­na­ment with three goals each. Kea­gan Buchanan slots at the heart of mid­field along­side Andile Jali – two play­ers whose ca­reers have been re­vived in this pe­riod of the TKO as they are hit­ting top form. Jali was rock-solid through­out the com­pe­ti­tion with his slick passes, while Buchanan kept it sim­ple but ef­fec­tive at the heart of the Team of Choice’s mid­field. The duo plays side-by-side in the cen­tre of the park.
