Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Dennis Onyango has been shortlisted as one of Africa’s best players and is the only South African-based Representative on the list.

The Ugandan international keeper has been in sublime form for his club who were unfortunate to lose out on defending their CAF Champions League title when they went down to eventual champions Wydad Casablanca in the quarter-finals.

Onyango is joined on the shortlist by high-profiled players such as Liverpool’s Sadio Mane (Senegal), Mohamed Salah (Egypt + Liverpool FC), Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Gabon + Borussia Dortmund).

Last year's winner, Riyad Mahrez was left off the 11-man shortlist for 2017.

Bertrand Traore (Burkina Faso & Olympique Lyon)                  
Denis Onyango (Uganda & Mamelodi Sundowns)
