Liverpool duo Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah were among five nominees named for the BBC's African Footballer of the Year award on Saturday.

The victor of this year's award will be announced on Monday 11 December.

Moses was only a nominee back in 2013 while Leicester's Riyad Mahrez won previous year.

Egypt winger Salah has had a year to remember both in the colours of Roma and Liverpool, and for his national side. Mane scored 13 goals for Liverpool in the 2016-17 season- and that's after missing the last two months of the campaign due to injury- and was instrumental in helping Senegal qualify for the World Cup.

Victor Moses equally played a great role as Nigeria came the first country from africa to qualify for 2018 world cup in Russian Federation. He has scored seven goals in 11 league games with the Reds so far, as well as five goals in six Champions League matches.

Moses has made the shortlist for the BBC prize following a fantastic year at Chelsea in which he helped us win the Premier League title and reach the FA Cup final, all from the new position of right wing-back.

Other nominees are Gabon and Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Guinea and RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita, Senegal and Liverpool forward Sadio Mane, and Egypt and Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah.
