The former player of AS Vita Club Filston Mayele is currently playing for Young Africans of Tanzania. At the beginning of the season, the Congolese striker has the fire in his legs.
Far from the aura of Erling Halaand or Neymar and Lewandoswki who are currently scoring goal after goal on European turf, Filston Mayele is slowly making a name for himself on the African continent. He torpedoes all the defenses that stand in his way and frequently sends the opposing goalkeepers to the back of their nets. At the time of this international break, he has 12 goals in 7 games with his club Young Africans of Tanzania.
Born in Mbuji-Mayi in central Democratic Republic of Congo on June 24, 1994, Filston Mayele joined the Tanzanian club a year ago from AS Vita Club. In his first season, the 28-year-old striker helped end Simba SC's hegemony in Tanzania by scoring 16 league goals. But it is at the beginning of the current season that he explodes even more. He has indeed started on a high note in the Tanzanian Super cup. While his team was trailing 1-0 at halftime by rival Simba SC, Mayele scored two goals in the second half to turn the tide.

In the league, after four games, the Congolese has already found the net four times. And in the CAF Champions League, Filston Mayele is the leading scorer. In two games, he has scored two hat-tricks, making the South Sudanese team Zalan his scapegoat. The Young Africans' management felt the need to extend his contract by three years. He is now linked to the Tanzanian club until 2025.
