Victor Moses nominated for BBC African footballer of the year

Moses Shortlisted For BBC African Footballer Of The Year Award

Voting for the BBC African Footballer of the Year 2017 has opened.

Borussia Dortmund and Gabon forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang rounds out the shortlist.

Liverpool's Sadio Mane is nominated for the third time while Moses, Guinean Naby Keita and Mohammed Salah of Egypt made the shortlist for the first time.

The victor of this year's BBC award will be announced on Monday 11 December, live on BBC World TV and BBC World Service Radio.

He is also on a 30-man shortlist for the CAF African Footballer of the Year Award. "We won the League, we got to the FA Cup final", Moses told club website. I really enjoyed the season past year and I'm very happy with how it went.

"In the first game in the World Cup qualifiers against Algeria I scored twice which was very good, and helped us get the three points". A clinical victory over South Africa at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane sealed their place in Russian Federation, with Mane key to the Teranga Lions' victory with both assists in a 2-0 win.

Moses was a nominee back in 2013.

Gabonese goal machine Aubameyang became the first African to top the Bundesliga's scoring charts outright with 31 goals last season, and he's maintained his fine form by already netting 10 goals this term. "And now we have qualified for the World Cup".

Egypt winger Salah has had a year to remember both in the colours of Roma and Liverpool, and for his national side.
