The 2nd week of the Dialog Champions League 2016 ended with home teams winning six out of the 8 matches played a reverse from week 1 where the visiting team won 5.

From the 8 matches has chosen the XI who was worthy enough to be named in the ‘Team of the Week.’

Mohamed Luthfi

Position : Goalkeeper

Name: Mohamed Luthfi

Club: Up Country Lions

Luthfi had solid game, even though the two goals that went in were not his fault, making a few saves against Crystal Palace that kept the Lions in the game.

Position: Centre-back

Name: Ziya Osman

Club: Colombo FC

Ziya Osman

Osman did not have much to do in defense as Colombo FC romped to a 4-0 win but playing at left back was constantly going up and down in defense and attack. To top it off he had a clean sheet.

Dilshan Fernando

Position: Centre-back

Name: Dilshan Fernando

Club: Air Force SC

The 2013 captain of Air Force who led them to the title that year scored a goal and had a clean sheet against multiple times Premier League champions Saunders SC in tricky conditions.

Position: Centre-back

Name: Chamika Kumara

Club: Police SC

Chamika Kumara

A surprise 3-2 win for Police SC against hosts Java Lane during the weekend and although there weren’t standout performers from Police, Chamika Kumara caught our eye with a calm and composed game at right back.

Afam Akram

Position: Left-midfield

Name: Afam Akram

Club: Renown SC

Playing only his 2nd match in Renown colours, Afam looks to have jelled well with the team, scoring a goal and was a constant threat on the left and right wings.

Position: Central-midfield

Name: Anton Ranjan

Club: Solid SC

Ranjan returning this year for Solid after the 2014 championship run was a live-wire in midfield scoring a hat-trick and going box to box in the match against Civil Security Force.

Sanka Danushka

Position: Central-midfield

Name: Sanka Danushka

Club: Army SC

The recently crowned FA Cup champions started off the 2016 DCL campaign in emphatic fashion against Blue Star where once again Sanka was at the centre pulling the strings. He capped off a fine performance with a goal in injury time.

Position: Right-midfield

Name: Kavindu Ishan

Club: Air Force SC

Kavindu Ishan

The skipper was excellent in tricky home conditions where almost all struggled and scored a goal as well.

Naveen Jude

Position: Forward

Name: Naveen Jude

Club: Java Lane SC

Naveen scored two, with the second being a stunning volley and stood out from the rest of his teammates in a rather lackluster team performance.

Position: Forward

Name: Mohamed Issadeen

Club: Army SC

Mohamed Issadeen

The sharp shooter showed no signs of slowing even after his hamstring injury and continued from where he left off in the FA Cup, where he scored twice, and added four against Blue Star.

Zarwan Johar

Position: Forward

Name: Zarwan Johar

Club: Colombo FC

Zarwan came alive late in the first half and had a part in all three goals in the 2nd half where Colombo FC scored thrice in 10 minutes. He was shifted in between the forwards and midfield where he thrived.
