Nigerian international and Chelsea forward, Victor Moses has been dropped out of the three finalists for the 2017 African Footballer of The Year Award.

CAF rather shortlisted Sadio Mane (Liverpool& Senegal), Mohammed Salah (Liverpool& Egypt) and Pierre- Emerick Aubemeyang ( Borrusia Dortmund&Gabon).

Among the final three, a winner will be announced on 4th January 2018.

Recently crowned BBC Africa Footballer of the Year, Salah is the favourite for the award, after playing an important role at both the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations as Egypt reached the final and in qualification for their first World Cup since 1990.

He is also the Premier League’s top scorer after netting 14 goals in 18 league outings.

Aubameyang will, however, be hopeful of winning his second award and his first since 2015.

Bertrand Traore, Denis Onyango, Karim El Ahmadi, Keita Balde, Vincent Aboubakar and Yacine Brahimi were some of the others players cut from the 11-man shortlist.
