Mahrez Dethrones Aubameyang, Nigeria Shines At 2016 Glo/CAF Awards


The 25-year-old impressed during the first half of the year particularly, when he helped his club lift their first ever Premier League title.

His exploits in attack for Leicester secured him another individual award at the end of the 2015-16 season, as his fellow professionals voted him as the Professional Footballers' Association Player of the Year.

National Team of the Year - Uganda, Women's National Team of the Year - Nigeria, Referee of the Year -Bakary Papa GASSAMA (Gambia), Football Leader of the Year.

Indeed the Dortmund stiker was forced to attend the glitzy gala in his skivvies after losing his luggage somewhere between Germany and Nigeria...

He beat 2015 victor Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of Gabon and Borrusia Dortmund who had 313 votes in second place, and Sadio Mane of Senegal and Liverpool who was third with 186 votes.

NAN reports that Pokou who died last November was posthumously inducted together with Cameroonian Emilienne Mbango, one of the pioneers of women football on the continent.

More than 200 of the girls remain missing, though several have reportedly died from things such as malaria and snake bites. The Nigerian military has said another of the 276 schoolgirls abducted in 2014 by Boko Haram militants has been freed.

Arsenal had double cause for celebration, with Asisat Oshoala being crowned Africa's best female player for the calendar year.

Aubameyang had scooped the award for 2015, while Ivory Coast superstar Yaya Toure had won four in a row between 2011 and 2014.

Aubameyang, the Bundesliga's second-highest scorer in 2015-16, finished ahead of Yaya Toure past year, despite the Manchester City midfielder captaining the Ivory Coast to the 2015 African Nations Cup.

They are both contenders in the young player of the year category.

All three finalists also made the confederation's Best XI.

Iheanacho has already won a CAF award, when he was crowned the most promising youngster in 2013, shortly after helping Nigeria win the Federation Internationale de Football Association U17 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates that same year.
