Liverpool duo Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah have been shortlisted for the 2017 BBC African Footballer of the Year award.

They are two of five players in contention for the accolade, alongside Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Chelsea's Victor Moses and Naby Keita of RB Leipzig, who will join Liverpool ahead of the 2018-19 season.

Mane, who helped Senegal qualify for the World Cup on Friday, has been nominated for the third time, while Salah, who played a major role in helping Egypt qualify for Russia 2018, is included for the first time in the poll.

The winner will be decided by an online public vote – which is open until 6pm GMT on November 27 – and revealed on Monday December 11.
