Check CAF Team of The Decade, As Only One Nigerian Feature In The Team
On the quest of acknowledging African players that distinguished themselves in the last decade in the continent football space, only one Nigerian player is considered appropriate in the team.
The IFFHS sported a 4-3-3 formation for the positioning and the ex-Super Eagles captain starts in goal for the TOTD. Pyramid’s Ahmed Fathy from Egypt, Al-Duhail SC’s Medhi Benatia from Morocco, Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly from Senegal and Manchester United’s Eric Bailly from Ivory Coast constitute the defense-line.
Consisting entirely of EPL stars, the midfield has Ivory Coast and Manchester City legend Yaya Toure, Swansea City’s Ghana star Andre Ayew and Manchester City’s Algeria dazzler Riyad Mahrez.
The EPL influence stretches into the attack as well. Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the Gabonese captain, Liverpool duo of Egyptian Mohamed Salah and Senegalese Sadio Mane, who shared the Premier League Golden Boot award for the 2018-19 season were picked as attackers.
