Three Mamelodi Sundowns players have the Confederation of African Football (Caf) Champions League team of the week after their impressive performances thus far in the competition.

Teko Modise, Khama Biliat and Thabo Nthethe were picked as some of the top performers in the continental competition after match day 4.

Modise was a marvel to watch as he pulled the strings and commanded the midfield in Sundowns’ 1-0 win over Egyptian giants, Zamalek last week.

Biliat tormented the Zamalek defence and came close to scoring on numerous occasions. Nthethe was solid at the back and easily thwarted every attacking effort Zamalek tried.

Ivory Coast giants, Asec Mimosas are the only team who have three players in the team, with defender Nabi Ibrahim Kone, midfielders, Nimaki and Diarrassouba.

Egyptian team, Al Ahly also have three representatives with defender Ramy Rabia, midfielder, Soliman and goalkeeper, Ahmed El-Moneim making the team.

Zambia’s Zesco United have two players in striker, Jackson Mwanza and defender, Musikwa.
