Edduard Mendy, Kalidou Khoulibaly, Nampalys Mendy, Kalidou Ciss, and Sadid Mane from Senegal. Ali Maaldoul from Tunisia:

As much as most of the players on this list are incredible for their clubs and countries, these awards are mostly based on achievements and how they performed in achieving that cup or individual award. My first pick for the top three would be Sadid Mane because he was instrumental in Senegal winning Caf and in the qualification of his country for the World Cup. He was also important for his club in terms of the two cups they won and for getting Liverpool into the final of the Eurfa. My second pick would be Edduard Mendy, because like Mane, he helped his country with the cup and qualification. Even though he was lacking a little bit in his club football, he made some great performances and was responsible for his team ending the season as number three on the log. The last pick would be Riyad Mahrez because of his performances for his club and taking them to the final of the UEFA Champions League.
