Mamelodi Sundowns attacker Percy Tau and goalkeeper Denis Onyango have both also been nominated for the Caf African Player of the Year award

It's the second year in a row that Sundowns players are getting attention, with Onyango having won the award last year.

For this reason the bigger news this time, is that these two SuperSport United players are recognised.

Here's how Jeremy Brockie and Dean Furman reacted to their nominations. Are you wondering how Brockie got in, when he's from New Zealand?

Well, this award is for players based in Africa, so it doesn't matter if you're originally from outside of the continent. In the same way Leo Messi can win awards in the Uefa Champions League, even though he is not European.

Brockie deserves his praise after impressing in the Caf Confederation Cup for United. You can read how his fans have reacted too.

SuperSport United will play TP Mazembe in the final later this month.
