Two out - three in in Africa

Nearly at the end of November ten names, from two lists, were introduced to be best footballers in Africa for 2016. Today that was shortened to just three players each.
Votes from 54 African coaches, media committee, technical and football committee with media experts have decided to keep Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Gabon / Borussia Dortmund), Riyad Mahrez (Algeria / Leicester) and Sadio Mane (Senegal / Liverpool) in contention for the best African player award. Unfortunately there was no space for Mohamed Salah (Egypt / Roma) and Islam Slimani (Algeria / Leicester).
Same people have been voted for the other list: the best player of the year - based in Africa. 'Surplus' were both South African footballers Hlompho Kekana and Keegan Dolly, which means that the following trio is still with a chance to be named domestic player of 2016: Denis Onyango (Uganda), Khama Billiat (Zimbabwe) and Rainford Kalaba (Zambia).
All winners, along with the other categories, will be presented on 05 January in Abuja, Nigeria.
