Egyptian striker Mohamed Salah completed a memorable day for Egyptian football by retaining his African Footballer of the Year award in Senegal on Tuesday.
The 26-year-old Liverpool star beat fellow nominees, Liverpool team mate Sadio Mane and Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
He edged the same two players last year in a vote decided by the technical directors and head coaches of 56 CAF member associations.
Earlier in the day, Egypt crushed sole rivals South Africa 16-1 in a CAF executive committee vote in Dakar to decide which country would succeed Cameroon as 2019 Cup of Nations hosts.
