Mohamed Salah's goal

The striker, who now plays for Liverpool, was awarded for his 2017 performances with Liverpool as well as the Egyptian national team, which has qualified for the 2018 World Cup.

Following an eye-catching year for both club and country, the former Chelsea attacker now hopes to one day go down as Egypt's best ever. It was very hard to explain the moments.

"I had unbelievable moments as Egypt reached the World Cup for the first time since 28 years".

Borussia Dortmund and Gabon striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang came third.

National coaches, Confederation of African Football (CAF) officials, journalists and the public were involved in the voting.

Salah has enjoyed a sensational start to his Liverpool FC career after scoring 17 times in 21 games in the Premier League this season.

Known better as a failed Chelsea winger, Salah's iconic moment in 2017 was when he helped Egypt reach the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

The 25-year-old was an integral part of Egypt's squad at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations in February, where he registered two goals and two assists while leading Egypt to the competition's final.

"I want to tell them to never stop dreaming, never stop believing".

Mohamed Salah topped off an incredible 2017 by being crowned the African Player of the Year on Thursday evening.

He did stand out for Senegal, however, as they secured a first World Cup appearance since 2002, providing much of the creativity in a team stacked with physically formidable footballers.

The National team of the year was Egypt having finished second at the 2017 AFCON and qualifying to the biggest football competition in the World and South Africa U20 women's team was named the National Women's team of the year.

Salah succeeded Riyad Mahrez who was the recipient of the top CAF award in 2016.
