On Tuesday the Best player in Africa will be crowned in Murghada (Egypt) and Mahrez, Mané or Salah could be awarded it.

The 3 Premier League players were favourties from the outset, and are the ones who have made the final 3. The shortlist was whittled down from 25.

England will especially keep a close eye on the award as the 3 players up for the award are from the Premier League. Mané and Salah both play for Liverpool whilst Mahrez is at Manchester City.

While the first 2 won the Champions League and the Club World Cup with Liverpool, the Algerian won the African Cup of Nations with his country and the Premier League with City.

Salah became the favourite after scoring in the Champions League final but Egypt's unexpected elimination in the African Cup of Nations last 16 could hinder his chances.

But there will be other awards as well as the player of the year. In the youth category, Achraf, Chukwueze and Osimhen are in contention.

The players up for female player of the year are the Cameroonian Nchout, the Nigerian Oshoala and the South African Kgatlana.
