Egypt’s Mohamed Salah and Nigeria’s Asisat Oshoala were the biggest winners of the 2017 CAF Awards which held in Ghana on Thursday evening.

While Liverpool’s Salah won his first African Player of the Year award, China-based Oshoala won her third Women’s Player of the Year award at the event sponsored by Aiteo group.

Salah beat Sadio Mane of Senegal and Gabon’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to win the award.

He enjoyed a remarkable 2017 in which he powered Egypt to their first World Cup since 1990 by scoring a dramatic stoppage-time penalty against Congo during the qualifiers.

The 25-year-old helped AS Roma finish second in the Serie A behind Juventus, scoring 15goals with 11 assists – that earned him a big money move to Liverpool and he has hit the ground running with 17goals in 21 matches in the premier league so far.

Oshoala beat Cameroon’s Gabrielle Aboudi Onguene and Chrestina Kgatlana of South Africa to the female top honour.
