Victor Moses nominated for BBC African Footballer of the Year award

The player with the highest number of votes will take the award home.

The advocate for women in football believe there are sensational female footballers who emerged from the continent and are making significant impact in the round leather game both at their club side and at global level.

Borussia Dortmund and Gabon striker Aubameyang is on the shortlist for the fifth consecutive year, while Liverpool's Senegalese star Mane is nominated for a third time.

She said, "How long are we going to continue complaining about ONE SIDED AWARDS?" And the obviously disappointed former BBC Women's Footballer of the Year award holder ended her reaction by saying "WHAT A SHAME".

In addition, incoming Liverpool signing Naby Keita made the list.

The BBC will announce the award victor on Monday, December 11.

Victor Moses could become the 4th Nigerian player to win the award after the likes of Emmanuel Amunike (1996), Nwankwo Kanu (1997, 1999), and Jay Jay Okocha (2003, 2004) if he emerges as the winner.

BBC's African Footballer of the Year shortlisted five: Mane (top, left), Moses (center, left), Salah (bottom, left), Aubameyang (top, right) and Kieta (bottom, right).

Moses, who has helped Nigeria seal their place in next year's FIFA World Cup, played a vital role in Chelsea's victory in the English Premier League last season.
