The African Cup of Nations hosted by Gabon and Equatorial Guinea kicks off tomorrow and it can't come a moment too soon for some.
Amongst the competition's remaining squads lie some extremely gifted individuals that ply their trades at some of the most prestigious clubs in the world.
Africa certainly has talent.
Here I'm going to guide you through my picks of the best 11 players left in the tournament.
Whilst I have tried to include a goalkeeper, defender, midfielder and an attacker within my picks, the resulting 11 are not going to be a viable playing formation that you could set up on FIFA when you get home from work.
It is a homage to 11 great individuals that we will have the pleasure of watching over the next three weeks or so should we choose.
I hope you enjoy.
