Okocha is a typical example why individual or team award doesn't mater in determining a great player..

If it were up to me, he would be the greatest player ever to play the game behind only Messi..

This is just one person's opinion.

Its a very shitty team.

3 Center forwards, 2 Defensive midfielders, 3 Central defenders, No Central midfielder. No Left back, No Right back...Are you kidding me?

Yekini no come dey there? No Abedi Pele? No Roger Milla or Diouf ? The guy for kuku put Sunday Oliseh for goalkeeper na make the mumu for complete.

African all stars Africa’s best ever XI including Drogba and Toure after legend Eto’o retires

SAMUEL ETO’O called time on an incredible playing career last night.
After 22 years, Eto’o, 38, who enjoyed successful spells at Barcelona, Chelsea and Inter Milan, has hung up his boots.

Announcing the news on Instagram, Eto’o wrote: “The end. Towards a new challenge. “Thank you all, big love.”

In the wake of that news, SunSport reveals Africa’s best XI…


VINCENT ENYEAMA
Arguably the best African goalkeeper of the past decade, Enyeama is Nigeria’s joint-highest appearance maker with 101 caps to his name. He acted as the Super Eagles’ vice captain for their 2013 Africa Cup of Nations triumph and featured in the 2010 and 2014 World Cups – notably putting in a sensational performance against Argentina and Lionel Messi in the former tournament.


RIGOBERT SONG
An icon of Cameroonian football, Song is the most capped played of his country and he pulled on the national team jersey 137 times over 17 years.


SAMMY KUFFOUR
A stalwart of the Bayern Munich defence between 1993 and 2005 where he won 14 honours, Kuffour served Ghana with distinction too. He wasn’t the tallest of defenders but he made up for it with his exceptional positional awareness and he was voted African Player of the Year in 2001.


LUCAS RADEBE
Fondly remembered for his time at Leeds where he spent nine years, Radebe was one of the most versatile footballers of his generation. Starting out as a midfielder, he transitioned into a centre back and he steered South Africa to AFCON success in 1996.


YAYA TOURE
A four-time winner of African Footballer of the Year, Toure was a marauding footballer who was also a free-kick specialist. The Ivorian excelled at club level and at Manchester City, became only the second midfielder to score 20 goals in a single Premier League seasoin in 2014.


MICHAEL ESSIEN
Disciplined and possessing an excellent reading of the game, Essien won everything at club level and he also earned 58 caps for Ghana. He was physically strong and he retired last summer. Although he was unable to inspire Ghana to success, he more than left his mark on the game.


MOHAMED SALAH
Now a Champions League winner, Salah’s career was close to fizzling out after he was shown the door by Chelsea. But at Liverpool he reinvented himself and won two consecutive Premier League Golden Boots and a PFA Player of the Year award, and the rest as they say is history!


SADIO MANE
Another key component of the fearsome Liverpool trio, Mane was the pick of the bunch last season in the Premier League. Inspiring the Reds to a sixth European Cup, he has become one of the most complete forwards in the game.


SAMUEL ETO’O
Having just retired from the game, Eto’o has a deserved place in this glittering XI. Hard working and a natural finisher, he’s AFCON’s all-time top goalscorer and Cameroon’s all-time top scorer too.


DIDIER DROGBA
Drogba was an unstoppable force when he was at Chelsea, but while he succeeded at club, he couldn’t translate that to the international stage where he fell short with Ivory Coast’s ‘Golden Generation’.

GEORGE WEAH
Although he wasn’t as successful at club level, he is the only African player to ever win the Ballon d’Or. One of the most devastating forwards of his generation, Weah’s career saw him play for the likes of Chelsea, AC Milan, PSG and Monaco.

Re: Vincent Enyeama Makes Africa’s Best Ever XI By The Sun UK by CharleyBright(m): 6:58am On Sep 12
Lucas Radebe on that list when there were far better defenders in the continent?
What did Lucas Radabe play while in Leeds.
Is it because he was one yeye Captain of Leeds United?
Or is it that the list is meant to satisfy most African Nationals?

Wrong selection, but truth be told most Nigeria players that we consider to be great always display mediocre attitude by playing for lesser club side and is still happening now too, cos hardly u will see Nigeria players in bigger clubs
