CAF awards Cameroon striker Abubakar Vincent with the award for best player in the group stage during the #AfricanNation_Cup 2021 πŸ…

At the annual Confederation of African Football (CAF) awards ceremony in Cairo on Monday, Cameroon striker Samuel Eto’o was voted African Footballer of the Year for the record fourth time.
In a survey of national coaches throughout the continent, the 29-year-old native finished ahead of first-time finalist Asamoah Gyan of Ghana and past champion Didier Drogba of Ivory Coast.

Eto’o, who has won Africa’s most coveted individual award three years in a row since 2003, was named the best player at the FIFA Club World Cup, which his Italian team Inter Milan won last Saturday.
In a 3-0 victory over TP Mazembe of the Democratic Republic of Congo, the first African team to reach the final, the Cameroonian striker scored a brilliant close-range second goal of the 10-year competition.

Inter are currently world, European, and Italian champions, and former Real Madrid, Real Mallorca, and Barcelona striker Eto’o’s goals were instrumental in those victories.
However, he had little success as captain of the Cameroon ‘Indomitable Lions’ this year, with the team crashing out of the African Nations Cup in Angola in the quarterfinals.

The competition’s all-time leading scorer scored once each against Zambia and Tunisia, but the ‘Lions’ lost a shock group loss to Gabon and were trounced in the first knockout round by reigning winners Egypt.Cameron then performed poorly at Africa’s first World Cup, losing all three group matches under Eto’o’s guidance and became the first country to be eliminated from the competition.

Internal turmoil plagued the group, with some players attempting to influence French coach Paul le Guen’s selection, and Eto’o’s only solace came in the form of goals against Denmark and the Netherlands.
TP Mazembe, the four-time African Champions League winners, were voted Club of the Year after defeating Internacional of Brazil 2-0 in the United Arab Emirates last week before finishing second to Inter Milan.

Milovan Rajevac, the humble Serb coach who helped Ghana make 2010 such a memorable year, was named Coach of the Year. After the World Cup, he quit to join Saudi Arabian club Al-Ittihad Jeddah. Al-Ahly and Egypt midfielder Ahmed Hassan (African-based Player) and Ghana midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah (Most Promising Talent) were among the other award winners, with Ghana being awarded best national team as expected.
