Cape Town - Khama Billiat admits he is exciting about showcasing his talents on the global stage for Mamelodi Sundowns in the FIFA Club World Cup, in order to attract in overseas move.

Billiat is widely considered as one of the most influential attackers in the Premiership and, after helping the Brazilians to the CAF Champions League title, the Zimbabwean forward has been nominated for the CAF African Player of the Year award.

Along with his club ambitions, the former Ajax Cape Town man will represent his country in the African Cup of Nations in January and he remains hopeful that these two prestigious competitions can put him and his teammates in the shopping window for potential career-defining transfers.

"I will like to look at it in that way (to perform for potential scouts)," he told KickOff.

"This is why I am saying I need to go these tournaments in the best form. I have already worked on certain areas that I think I am weak in because this is a lifetime opportunity which doesn't come twice. You might get it once and if you don't use it in doing your best it will be a disadvantage to your career. 

"I think everyone is looking forward to that, to just be on top of their game. Even myself, I just believe that every game is an opportunity, even those that we play locally, because you never know who is watching. 

"If you are on top of your game some people might get interested in you, but yes, it is a bigger tournament and bigger opportunity for us to really bring our best form and see what will happen afterwards."
