No Ghanaian player made it in the final shortlists for this year's prestigious African Footballer of the Year and Best Player based in Africa awards.

''But once next year or two,they will all be matured for them to be nominated for future CAF awards event.''

 

The last Ghanaian player to win the African gong was Abedi Pele who won it thrice from 1991-1993.

 

Sammy Kufour, Andre Dede Ayew and Asamoah Gyan have in recent times emerged runners-up.
