Salah makes BBC African Footballer of the Year shortlist

Moses nominated for BBC African Player award

The five nominees for the 2017 BBC African Footballer of the Year award have been revealed.

Moses is joined on the list by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of Gabon, Guinean midfielder, Naby Keita, Sadio Mane of Senegal, and Egypt's Mohamed Salah. Mane scored 13 goals for Liverpool in the 2016-17 season- and that's after missing the last two months of the campaign due to injury- and was instrumental in helping Senegal qualify for the World Cup.

The winger won the English Premier League with Chelsea last season, also leading Nigeria to the World Cup in Russian Federation.

He, alongside the other nominees for the BBC award, is also on a 30-man shortlist for the CAF African Footballer of the Year Award.

Liverpool's then-record buy finished his first season at the club as the joint top scorer as the Reds qualified for the Champions League with only their second top-four finish in eight years.

The shortlist also features Chelsea and Nigeria winger Victor Moses, who spent the 2013-14 season on loan at Liverpool.

The victor for the award will be revealed on Monday, 11 December 2017.

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.
