Mavunga caught the eye of many South African Premiership clubs when he was named man-of-the-match at this year’s COSAFA Cup third-place play-off match between Zimbabwe and Lesotho.

The 20-year-old’s impressive attacking work rate also saw him scoring a superb goal that put the Warriors in front (2-1) in the 62nd minute of the match. The match was later won by Zimbabwe 5-4 on penalties following a 2-2 draw.
