4 Star Players That Can Make The Difference At The AFCON Semi Finals by robosky02(m): 12:37pm On Jul 12
As the AFCON get to the semi final stage we present 4 Star players that can make the difference at the AFCON for their countries. And indeed shape the tounament

1.Sadio Mané (born 10 April 1992)
is a Senegalese professional footballer who plays as a winger for Premier League club Liverpool and captains the Senegal national team
.
Having begun his career with Metz in France, he transferred to Red Bull Salzburg in 2012. After winning the Austrian Bundesliga and Austrian Cup in 2014, he was signed by Southampton. In 2015, Mané set a new Premier League record for the fastest hat-trick when he scored three times in 176 seconds during a 6–1 win over Aston Villa.[4] He transferred to Liverpool in 2016 for a fee of £34 million, making him the most expensive African player in history at that time.[5][6] Since joining Liverpool, Mané among other achievements scored in the 2018 UEFA Champions League Final. The following season he was joint recipient of the Premier League Golden Boot with 22 goals, and was part of the Liverpool team that won the 2019 UEFA Champions League Final.

Mané has earned over 60 caps for Senegal since his debut in 2012, and represented the national team at the 2012 Olympics, 2015 Africa Cup of Nations, 2017 Africa Cup of Nations, 2019 Africa Cup of Nations and the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

2 Odion Ighalo
Hate him or like him Odion Ighalo by statistic stand out as one of Nigerias hot shot to this years AFCON Tournament'sm

You will recall that Nigeria made it into this year's AFCON in the first place because of Ighalo's outstanding performances during the qualifiers. The 30-year-old recorded a total of seven goals to finish as the highest goalscorer, above the like of Sadio Mane, Mo Salah etc.

Certainly he has even proved to be Nigeria key man in this AFCON ,

he now has a total of three goals – the same as Senegal's Sadio Mané and Algeria's Adam Ounas.

Although Ighalo has said he prefers the trophy to the AFCON Golden Boot,

.
But with some more efford We won't be surprised to see him emerge the top scorer if Nigeria goes all the way to the finals.

3. Youssef Msakni (Tunisia)


The Carthage Eagles of Tunisia will be looking making it to the AFCON finals after dispatching Madagascar the conqurors of Nigeria. Much thanks to Youssef Msakni and the other skillfull Tunisia players.

After missing out at the Fifa World Cup in Russia,3. Youssef Msaknithe Belgium-based attacking midfielder is back for the Carthage Eagles. Msakni scored Tunisia's first goal at this Afcon in the group opener against Angola. Though it was not enough to seal a victory, it was a historic goal as it made Msakni the first Tunisian to score in four different Afcon editions. The Black Stars must be wary of the attacking prowess of the Tunisia captain.

Algeria have some very decent player , the likes of Slimani ,Ferghouli ,Maharez , .... infact 6 of their 10goals so far came from 6 different players

SE have a lot of work to do cos their coach doesn't sit down and we will be playing against 12 men that understand themselves .




Victor Moses and Mikel taught them a lesson during the world cup qualifier ....hope to see our midfield flourish come Sunday ... I think they re rugged too , it will be a fight to finish final
