SuperSport United striker Jeremy Brockie is looking forward to facing DR Congo giants TP Mazembe.

South African side United will take on Mazembe in the 2017 CAF Confederation Cup final first-leg clash in Lubumbashi on Sunday.

Brockie, who recently represented New Zealand in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, is enjoying life in Africa.

"When I joined SuperSport, one of my goals was to play in a CAF club competition," he told

The 30-year-old is the top goalscorer in this year's Confederation Cup having scored 10 goals.

"I have wonderful memories from visiting countries in the east, west and north of Africa this year," he added.

"SuperSport have performed brilliantly to reach the final and now we face a very good team in Mazembe."

United and Mazembe were part of Confederation Cup Group D. The two sides drew 2-2 in Lubumbashi and 0-0 in Pretoria.
