Super Eagles’ duo of Victor Moses and William Troost-Ekong have been named in the 2017 African Footballer of the Year Award shortlist after their impressive performances for the Super Eagles in the World Cup qualifiers and berth of the tournament in Russia next year, AOIFootball.com can report.

Moses, who had a fantastic season last year with Chelsea, helping the London club to the EPL trophy, is among the favourite for the award alongside Liverpool’s duo of Saido Mane and Mohamed Salah.

As expected reigning African Footballer of the Year, Riyad Mahrez, missed out on the shortlist after a shambolic 2017 performance which saw him fail to shine for both club and country, with Leicester failing to defend their EPL title and Algeria finishing last in their World Cup qualification group.

Nigerian energy giants, AITEO, are the headline sponsors of next year’s edition that will see players, officials and administrators who distinguished themselves during the year under review being honoured.

The winner will be decided by votes from the Head Coaches/Technical Directors of the National Associations affiliated to CAF, members of the CAF Technical and Development Committee and a panel of Media Experts.

The Awards Gala will be held on Thursday, 4 January 2018 in Accra, Ghana.

1. Ali Maaloul (Tunisia & Al Ahly)
