Big competition between Egypt and Morocco for "The best in Africa" 2023 awards

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has announced the list of nominees for the various Best in Africa awards for 2023, the dominant feature of which is the competition between Egypt and Morocco.

The Best of the Best Awards ceremony is scheduled to take place on Monday, December 11, 2023 in Marrakech, Morocco.

CAF divides the African Player of the Year award into two awards, the first for players active within the African continent, and the second for all players inside or outside the continent.

The voting period for the best awards includes the 2022 World Cup, which was historic by all accounts for the continent after Morocco reached the semi-finals for the first time in the history of African teams.

In this report from FanzWord you will find lists of candidates for the best in Africa with an analytical look at them.

Nominees for the African Player of the Year Award 2023

It seems difficult to predict who will win the best player in Africa, where there are many names that shone last year, such as Salah, Napoli striker Osimhen, and even Sadio Mane despite his modest season with Bayern, as well as Achraf Hakimi, the Moroccan champion in the World Cup with more than one other player such as Hakim Ziyech, Azzedine Onahi and Sofiane Amrabat.

The list includes two names from Algeria, Riyad Mahrez and Rami Bensbaini, with a single name from Tunisia, Mohamed Ali Ben Ramadan, and a heavy Egyptian presence of Al Ahly players.
