Victor Moses shortlisted for BBC African Footballer of the Year Award

Victor Moses shortlisted for BBC African Footballer of the Year Award

Super Eagles and Chelsea of England winger, Victor Moses has been nominated for the 2017 BBC African Footballer of the Year award.

Salah has found the back of the net 12 times this season for Liverpool following his move in the summer and it was his late penalty that sent Egypt to the World Cup for the first time since 1990.

The victor will be announced December 11.

Aubameyang, 28, has had an outstanding 2017, scoring 35 goals for Dortmund, with whom he won the German Cup.

The nomination follows another he received earlier this month for the African Footballer of the Year award, organised by CAF, the continent's governing body.

Joining Aubameyang in the Bundesliga team of the season was Keita, the Guinean midfielder who startled everybody with his form for RB Leipzig in a brilliant debut season for both - as the new boys finished second in the league.

Mane's fine form for Liverpool has carried over to the worldwide stage as the winger helped Senegal qualify for the World Cup for the first time since 2002.

His pace, explosiveness, composure and weekly electric display made Conte's Chelsea course a lot easier last season. He helped Nigeria qualify for the world cup in Russian Federation.

Similarly, Mohamed Salah helped push Egypt over the line in World Cup Qualifying while proving himself a rock star for the Reds. So far the 25-year old has hit an impressive seven goals in 11 appearances.
