With the African Cup of Nations only recently behind us, I am turning my crystal ball to the future to present a list of 10 of the continent’s finest young prospects. While none of these men were able to influence the tournament just past, I am sure that at least some of them will make their mark on proceedings in the future.
Note that this list is ’10 of the Best…’ rather than ‘The 10 Best…’, thus I have left out some of the continent’s star men who have already begun to make their mark at the continental high table. My views on the likes of Victor Moses, Younes Belhanda and Christian Atsu are readily available on Bleacher Report and elsewhere.
Whether you agree or disagree with my picks, comment below and let me know your own suggestions.
