Can Enyeama beat Yaya Toure to the African Footballer of the Year Award?

Super Eagles Captain, Vincent Enyeama, has made the final top 3 short-list for the CAF African Player of the Year Award.

The 3 short-listed African Players are; Nigeria’s Vincent Enyeama, Ivory Coast’s Yaya Toure and Gabon’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Apart from starring for Nigeria at the World Cup, the 32-year-old was impressive in a Lille side that finished third in Ligue 1 last season, helping the club to the UEFA Champions League preliminary stages.

Enyeama kept 21 clean sheets in the last league season.

Current holder; Yaya Toure and Gabon’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are the other two contenders for Africa’s biggest individual honours.

The winner will be unveiled on January 8 in Lagos.

The Super Eagles captain had earlier failed to win the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) organised African Footballer of the Year Award, having been shortlisted among players to vie for its 2014 edition.

Algeria and Porto forward, Yacine Brahimi won the BBC honours.
