Former footballer invited to attend Africa best player award

Luanda – Former Angolan football player Flavio Amado has been invited to attend the 2019 Africa Best Football player of the Year award to be held on Tuesday in Hurghada city, Egypt.

Egyptian Mohamed Salah, Senegalese Sadio Mane, both of Liverpool, and Algerian Riyad Mahrez, of Manchester City of England, are the last three to compete for the crown.
