The quartert will be Africa's only representatives in this year's annual curtain-raiser, with Sadio Mane still on holiday, but the competition has a proud history of winners from the continent, including one from South Africa.

Mahrez will be making his third appearance in the Community Shield, having previously taken part in 2016 with Leicester and with City last season, and already boasts a medal from the latter's triumph over Chelsea last time out.

The Algerian international is joined on the list by Ivorian brothers Kolo and Yaya Toure who boast four winners’ medals between them. Kolo accounts for three of those having won the competition twice with Arsenal and once with City.

Chelsea legend and fellow Ivorian, Didier Drogba, won the competition twice during his time with the London club and notably scored both goals in the club’s 2-1 win over Arsenal in 2005.
