Nigeria’s Victor Moses was left out of the CAF African Player of the Year award shortlist on Monday as Mohamed Salah of Egypt and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of Gabon were named among the three finalists.

Sadio Mane of Senegal completed the list announced in Ghana for the highest annual Confederation of African Football (CAF) individual honour.

Liverpool sharpshooter Salah is the leading English Premier League scorer this season with 14 goals, having moved from Roma in the off-season.

He also scored crucial goals as Egypt reached the 2018 World Cup in Russia, which will be the first appearance by the Pharaohs at the global showpiece in 28 years.

Borussia Dortmund striker Aubameyang lies second in the Bundesliga scorers charts with 13 goals, two less than Poland and Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski.

Mane, a team-mate of Salah at Liverpool, was the pivotal figure as Senegal reached the World Cup for the first time since 2002.

African Player of the Year title-holder Riyad Mahrez of Algeria and Leicester City was not among the 30-star original shortlist for the award this year.
