What yardstick used in selecting these players?Vincent was a good goalkeeper but how he beat Kanu and Okoacha to it is what baffles me.

It's best in your position. Vincent has won an afcon , kanu has not won any. When there are men like Drogba who solely determined Chelsea' s first Uefa cup win , George Weah the first and only African to win FIFA's world best player and Salah one of the few Africans to not only finish third in the Balon d'or nomination but to be one of the rated in Europe. Go and check Mane's price in transfer market, he is way above 100 million Euros, the first Black African player to worth that much.

Finally Okocha never won an African player of the year . He tried a bit when he was in PSG but an immature Ronaldino is sent him packing. The next club he went to was Bolton Wanderers who were playing the English Premier League then and there he earned a lot of money deliberately sitting on the bench. On his last birthday, a myraid of long time Bolton supporters cursed his ass out an called him a cheat. To be frank, Marhez of Algeria and Man City is far better than Okocha, even Ziyech of Morocco and Ajax. I've watched his world cup clips and all he did was complete unnecessary dribbles in the centre of the field which didn't lead to a goal when he should have released the ball to our dangerous strikers to score. He's just one of the humans Nigerians hype like Wizid and Davido who in the eye of international observers will never beat the likes of Akon and Kidjo in a legendary award.

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..
Sentiment aside, Ronaldinho played better than Okocha and was more successful than Okocha. Go watch both players' highlight, then tell me what you see..

Yes when they both played for PSG, Okocha was better and even mentored Ronaldinho. But as Ronaldinho was improving, Okocha wasn't improving, just playing for fun.

Re: Vincent Enyeama Makes Africa’s Best Ever XI By The Sun UK by efighter: 7:28am On Sep 12
Mad people governing Africa football. They is no and there will never be any African player that will be as good as Okocha. He is so good that he was named twice, J. J. Okocha. The African GOAT. the African god of Soccer.

Vincent Enyeama ahead of legendary Essam Kamal Tawfiq El Hadary of Egypt ?......imagine the position salah is being given......


both salah and mane should be in substitute......

The fvck is Lucas radebe?.......


Jay Jay should be manning the central midfield since we have 2 defensive midfielder in the person of yaya toure and essien.......

How can a football fan say that Enyeama is better than Peter Rufai. Enyeam is good, but better than Rufai is a slap to African football.

How do you play three center forwards in one team?

And you put fast attacking wingers like Sallah as just wingers behind Weah, who I'd rather play as a point man rather than Eto'o.

Both Yaya and Essien are not holding midfielders. They both drive very well, so who will be left behind to protect the defense?

Kanu has won Champions league, Cup winners Cup, 3 EPL, 5 FA Cup (4 with Arsenal, 1 with Portsmouth), and an Olympic gold medalist. What has Mane won? Just one Champions league. Even Mikel Obi so far is more successful than Mane
