Mamelodi Sundowns forward Jeremy Brockie is raring to go after opening his goalscoring account for the club in the Shell Helix Ultra Cup this past weekend.

Looking ahead, the Brazilians are now set to do battle with AS Togo-Port in the Caf Champions League, and Brockie could not have found a better time to get the proverbial monkey off his back as the Tshwane giants look move off the bottom of their group.

“It’s been a long time coming, and now people can stop asking when the first goal is going to come,” a rather jovial Brockie told members of the media on Wednesday.

“We can move on, and I feel that this is a start of a good season ahead - to do it in front of 50-odd thousand fans and lift a trophy at the end of it,” he added.

“The coach spoke about changing the team for the Chiefs game from the Togo, and it was up to us as players to put our hands up, take the opportunity and get our names in his thinking when it comes to the Togo game,” he explained.

“So, hopefully I did that, and if I get an opportunity on Friday, I feel like now that the first one has hit the back of the net, they’ll start coming,” he continued.

“We have a lot of good players at the club, but the confidence is obviously very high now, and I feel ready to take on the Togo team on Friday if selected,” Brockie further stated.

Meanwhile, Brockie previously missed out on a Caf Confederation Cup gold medal with SuperSport United, but he is determined to lift the Champions League title this time around with Masandawana.

“It would mean a lot. It’s a trophy that every player playing in the competition wants to win and it is one of the reasons why I joined this club,” he said.

“They have a history of winning the league and the Champions League, and they want to go back and do it again. So, it’s something that’s always spoken about,” Brockie shared.

“We obviously know the position we are in at the moment, but the last three games are all in our hands now. We just have to go out there, put on attacking performances and make sure we win our games,” he concluded.
