The 20-year-old scored his eighth goal in all competitions in Ajax's 2-0 win over the University of Pretoria on Friday and looks set to continue his role leading the line.

The youngster is keeping the likes of Thabiso Nkoana, Nathan Paulse and Robin Ngalande out of the side and, on current form, looks set to continue doing so.

“This is a great feeling really. The atmospere is great in the team and everybody is enjoying their football,” he told

“For me personally, I've scored in both the games that I've played in the Nedbank Cup, and scoring in the league also feels good.

"If we could win the Nedbank Cup, it would really be great for us as a team. The prize money and silverware would be great for the club also.”
