SASoccer365.com's Team Of The Week 08/12/03
SASoccer365.com cast an eye over the Coca-Cola Cup final as well as the weekend's six Castle Premiership matches and have selected a starting XI comprising the most impressive performers. Raed on and tell us what you think...

Goalkeeper: Moeneeb Jospehs
The young goal minder produced yet another impressive performance against Orlando Pirates, especially his saves at the death to deny Gift Leremi grabbing a winner for the Bucs. Based on his form over the past season and a half it will be criminal if he does not start for Bafana Bafana in the African Nations Cup next year.

Right-back: Cyril Nzama
The experienced Kaizer Chiefs right-back showed he is a man for the big occasion with a commanding performance in the Coca-Cola Cup final, which hopefully sent out a message to Shakes Mashaba that he is the answer to the problematic right-back slot in the Bafana Bafana setup.

Centre-back: Siphiwe Mkhonza
The former Bloemfontein Celtic and Ria Stars player continues to go from strength to strength in the heart of Golden Arrows defence and was a colossus against Moroka Swallows despite his teams 2-1 loss. Kept a firm grip on Birds strikers Shaun Permall and Dennis Lota.

Centre-back: Cyrille Mubiala
The best central defender in the Castle Premiership at present. The muscular DRC man is quick, good in the air, strong in the tackle and his positional play is impeccable. Against Pirates on Sunday his commanding presence stood out in an otherwise lackluster game.

Left-back: Warren Lewis
An ever-present in Gavin Hunts Swallows lineup since his move from Orlando Pirates, Lewis provides a hard-edge to any team he plays for. Not blessed with scorching pace, his timing in the tackle and reading of the game are top notch. Shone for the Dube Birds against Golden Arrows, keeping a watchful eye on Ace Gulwa and his replacement Mabuthi Khanyeza.

Right-midfield: Lucas Sebona
This long-time servant of Moroka Swallows has had a new lease on life this season. Weighed in with two well-taken goals against Abafana BesThende to confirm his value to the team.

Centre-midfield: John Shoes Moshoeu
Commanded the centre of the park like a man 10 years his junior in the Coca-Cola Cup final on Saturday. The 37-year-old Moshoeu oozes class and his overseas experience shines through every time he has the ball.

Centre-midfield: Gert Schalkwyk
A rare talent, big things await the 21-year-old Klerksdorp-born midfielder. The maturity of his performance against Dynamos defied his age, but sadly for Wits it can only be a matter of time before he is snapped up by one of the countrys big clubs.

Left-midfield: Edzai Kasinauyo
Yet another Swallows player in this weeks team is testament to how impressive the Birds are starting to look as they have climbed the table. The Zimbabwean was at his marauding best on Sunday and had many of the Arrows players chasing shadows.

Striker: Alois Bunjira
Looks to have put his nightmare at Sundowns behind him. The Zimbabwean weighed in with a good goal in Wits 1-1 draw with Dynamos to illustrate his value to The Clever Boys.

Striker: Patrick Mayo
Cooly slotted the last minute penalty for Kaizer Chiefs in the Coca-Cola Cup final. However, it was his tireless running off the ball, presence as a target man and the all round nuisance he made of himself on Saturday afternoon that gets Mayo into this weeks elite XI.
