Mohamed Salah completed a memorable day for Egyptian football by retaining his African Player of the Year award in Senegal on Tuesday.

The 26-year-old Liverpool star finished first with club-mate Sadio Mane and Arsenal and Gabon striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang the other finalists.

Egypt crushed sole rivals South Africa 16-1 earlier Tuesday in a CAF executive committee vote in Dakar to decide which country succeeded Cameroon as 2019 Cup of Nations hosts.
