Liverpool duo Salah and Mane headlines African players in Uefa Team of the Year shortlist

Liverpool forwards Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane lead the African nominees for the 2019 Uefa Team of the Year.

Africa is hugely represented in the annual team selection of best players in Europe with six of its stars making the 50-man shortlist.

Six African players, including Ajax duo Andre Onana and Hakim Ziyech, Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly, made the preliminary 50-man shortlist that was announced on Tuesday.

Salah and Mane earned their spots in the selection after guiding Liverpool to lift the 2018-19 Champions League title and also for their goalscoring feats in England, where they shared the Premier League Golden Boot with Aubameyang after scoring 22 goals each last term.
