With AFCON going on, who would you go for as the top 10 African players ever?

To name a few (and tbf, the first 5 probably would be my top 5):

Samuel Eto'o
George Weah
Didier Drogba
Mohamed Salah
Yaya Toure
Roger Milla
Jay-Jay Okocha
Michael Essien
Yakubu
Emmanuel Adebayor
Kanu
Saido Mane

I'm sure there's loads I've missed out.

Drogba, Salah, Weah, Okocha, Yaya are probably my top 5 but being a 9 year old watching Cameroon inn1990, no one will ever eclipse Roger Milla as the coolest footballer I have ever or will ever see!

Pele?

Since there are no defenders in anyone's list, id like to add Koulibaly to the list.

Kanu was also good

If anyone adds Bruce Grobbelaar, whilst true, it should be a ban from the forum

Abedi Pele (father of Jordan and Andre Ayew) was arguably the best African footballer before Weah and the more recent crop.

In my football supporting lifetime (1994 onwards) I think the best 5 players from Africa are:

Samuel Eto'o
Mohammed Salah
Didier Drogba
Yaya Toure
Saido Mane

Honourable mention to Michael Essien
