Mohamed Salah stars in AFCON team of the tournament
Super stars Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, Sadio Mane and Riyadh Mahrez all failed to make the cut as the Confederation of African Football CAF selected the best XI at the tournament.
Egypt’s Mohammed Salah takes centre stage for the Pharoahs along with teammate Ahmed Heghazy in defence. As expected champions Cameroon played a prominent part in the team with Ondoa, Ngadeu-Ngadjui and Bassagog all making the team.
