Shalulile proving unstoppable in reaching new heights

Premiership

Hotshot striker Peter Shalulile's scoring prowess was put to the fore yet again this week on international duty as he continued his scintillating form in front of goal.

Shalulile struck the opener away at Congo Brazzaville before the hosts equalised in a game that ended 1-1 in Group H of the 2022 Qatar FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

The Brave Warriors were already out of contention with Sadio Mane's Senegal having already sealed the group.

Shalulile’s goal on Thursday took his tally for this calendar year up to 32 from 48 matches translating to two goals in every three matches played.

The Namibian striker has scored four goals this year for Namibia in both the Afcon and World Cup qualifiers with his goals coming against strong West African opposition in Guinea and Senegal.

The free-scoring forward who is now also captain of the national team stands to add to his tally with Namibia hosting Togo at Orlando Stadium on Monday.

Shalulile has been on target thrice in the last two games that he has played at the Soweto venue. 

For Sundowns, he has banged 28 since the beginning of this year.

His first for the year at club level was against Black Leopards when he scored a brace on January 27 and had another two at Marumo Gallants in the most recent match that he played.

This season he has 11 goals in 13 appearances for The Brazilians – numbers that have never been reached by any forward at the club in all previous years.

Though he has played lesser games, Shalulile is already on numbers better than the legendary Daniel ‘Mambush’ Mudau managed at the same age at the club.

Shalulile is also already the leading goals scorer with eight goals from nine appearances.
