The in-demand Namibian striker, who finished as joint-top goalscorer in the National First Division with 15 goals in 2018, is currently tied on 14 goals with Orlando Pirates forward Gabadinho Mhango at the top of the leading scorers list.

With Highlands Park only left with three games to finish the season, Shalulile says he is targeting at least three more goals more to be crowned this season's winner.

"I will leave everything in God's hands my brother and if you believe in yourself, everything is possible you know," Shalulile tells KickOff.com.

"It feels nice, it's a dream come true. It feels like... I am very excited you know. I want to be the first Namibian to get it. That's why it's so important.

"And as a striker it's always important because it will boost my CV, and you know it opens doors."

How many goals does he think will win the Golden Boot this season?

"18 and plus," Shalulile responds. "Ja it's possible [to score four goals]. You are always under pressure when you are on top there my brother. There's nothing to relax about.

"But you just need to keep on working the same way you got there. My teammates, the people at the club, the support they give and the strength of God, they made it possible.

"To be honest I'm looking at scoring three goals."
