Odion Ighalo has been named as one of the best eleven from the just concluded 2019 African Cup of Nations in Egypt.

Ighalo is the only Nigerian in the African best XI named by Confederation of African Football on Saturday morning.

The list was mainly by Senegal and Algeria players.

The 30-year old scored five goals to win the highest goal scorer gong in the African football show piece in Egypt.

Expectedly, Algeria’s Rais M’Bolhi is named as the best goalkeeper because he conceded just two goals throughout the tournament.

Goals from Kodija of Ivory Coast and a penalty kick converted by Nigeria’s Odion Ighalo were the only goals he conceded in normal time.

His country men, Ismael Bennacer, Adlene Guediora and Riyad Mahrez are also listed.

Liverpool and Senegal’s talisman, Sadio Mane made the cut.

List of African best XI:

Goalkeeper: Rais M’Bolhi (Algeria)

Defenders: Lamine Gassama (Senegal), Yassine Meriah (Tunisia), Youssouf Sabaly (Senegal), Kalidou Koulibaly (Senegal)

Midfielders: Adlene Guediora (Algeria), Idrissa Gana Gueye (Senegal), Ismael Bennacer (Algeria)

Forwards: Riyad Mahrez (Algeria), Sadio Mane (Senegal), Odion Jude Ighalo (Nigeria)
Coach: Djamel Belmadi (Algeria)
