Share on: WhatsApp Accra, Ghana | AFP | Liverpool star Mohamed Salah hopes to add the African Player of the Year award in Ghana Thursday to his rapidly expanding collection of individual honours.The Egyptian, scorer of 23 goals in all competitions midway through his first season at Anfield, has been voted BBC African Footballer of the Year and Arab Player of the Year.Salah, Liverpool team-mate Sadio Mane of Senegal and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of Borussia Dortmund and Gabon are the contenders for the highest African individual football honour.The scoring feats of Salah have installed him as the public and media favourite to succeed Algerian Riyad Mahrez of Leicester City as the number one African footballer.“I want to be the best Egyptian footballer ever,” said Salah after receiving the BBC award last month.“When I came to Liverpool I hoped to show everyone my abilities. I scored a lot of goals with Roma and am very happy being successful at Liverpool.”Salah also starred for Egypt, scoring five of the goals that qualified his country for the 2018 World Cup in Russia after a 28-year absence from the global showpiece.Mane will also be in Russia next June, adding abundant creativity to a physically formidable Senegal side.Gabon did not qualify and Aubameyang shunned several World Cup call-ups, a fact that could count against him.Salah and Mane will leave Accra soon after the awards ceremony as Liverpool have a Friday night FA Cup third-round derby date with Everton.However, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp did not hesitate to release his African duo for the Accra ceremony, which will include six other awards.“It is a sign of respect,” he told reporters in Liverpool. “We sleep in a hotel and they sleep in a plane. That is the only difference.”Salah is a doubt for the Merseyside showdown, though, having missed the English Premier League victory at Burnley this week owing to a groin strain.Should Salah be named Player of the Year, he will be only the second Egyptian after 1983 winner Mahmoud al Khatib to hoist the symbol of individual brilliance.It would be the first time since 1986 that north Africans have won successive editions of the poll, which this year involved national coaches, journalists, officials and the public.Morocco midfielder Mohamed Timoumi was the 1985 winner, followed by compatriot Badou Zaki, one of two goalkeepers to be voted the best African footballer.Footballers from the west of the continent have dominated recently with Samuel Eto’o of Cameroon and Yaya Toure of the Ivory Coast each winning four times.While Salah has made the top three for the first time, prolific Bundesliga scorer Aubameyang finished first once and second twice in the past three award ceremonies.Mane came third last season, but his valuable input for Liverpool has been overshadowed by Salah, second in the Premier League scorers’ charts behind Harry Kane of Tottenham Hotspur. Contenders for 2017 Confederation of African football awards, which will be presented at a ceremony in Ghana Thursday (alphabetical order):Player of the YearPierre-Emerick Aubameyang (GAB, Borussia Dortmund/GER), Sadio Mane (SEN, Liverpool/ENG), Mohamed Salah (EGY, Liverpool)Women’s Player of the YearChrestina Kgatlana (RSA, UWC Ladies), Gabrielle Aboudi Onguene (CMR, CSKA Moscow/RUS), Asisat Oshoala (NGR, Dalian Quanjian/CHN)Youth Player of the YearPatson Daka (ZAM, Liefering/AUT), Krepin Diatta (SEN, Sarpsborg/NOR), Salam Giddou (MLI, Guidars)Coach of the YearHussein Amoutta (Wydad Casablanca/MAR), Hector Cuper (EGY), Gernot Rohr (NGR)Club of the YearAl Ahly (EGY), TP Mazembe (COD), Wydad CasablancaNational Team of the YearCameroon, Egypt, NigeriaWomen’s National Team of the YearGhana U-20, Nigeria U-20, South Africa
Facebook15Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Karen Birbari, Omni EstheticsI always love the fall. The change of season brings about nature’s stunning displays of Autumn colors. Our wardrobes change to include cozy sweaters, scarves and warm boots. We also fall in love with everything pumpkin! We even see dietary changes, enjoying comfort foods like hearty soups. Why then do we not change our skincare? Skin is our largest organ and the one that faces the outer elements, as well as the skin on our face as the most exposed.At Omni Esthetics we love everything skin and even have pumpkin in some of our skin care. Investing in good skincare is investing in a lifetime of beautiful skin. The cooler season often brings changes in our skin. Our internal environments get dryer from heating and the cooler air outside can wreck havoc on our skin. Many of us cease to use sunblock thinking that the harmful rays are gone. Not true. So what should one do? Getting a skin analysis by a reputable esthetician to evaluate your skincare and access any changes that might be necessary to preserve and maintain the beauty of your skin. And why continue to wear sunblock? The 2 main rays that affect us are UVA & UVB. While the UVB rays diminish with the season change the UVA rays do not. UVA is responsible for the damage that we incur over a lifetime of exposure as well as skin cancer. So always protect.The change of season is also a good time to get a facial . A great facial is wonderful way to revitalize skin and erase any damage that might have occurred during time in the sun. There are many kinds of facials and they can be tailored to address individual needs. Many do not realize that skin damage to an extent can be reversed with proper treatment. Another outcome of having a facial is that it increases the effectiveness of your skincare at home. Invest in the skin that you are in!Omni Esthetics3905 Martin Way E, Suite E, Olympia360-338-0289Featured photo credit: jennlvs2smile

Crystal Palace striker Emmanuel Adebayor battles Arsenal defender Gabriel Paulista Crystal Palace striker Emmanuel Adebayor accepts why Arsenal fans give him such a hostile reception, though he insists he just laughs off their jeers and boos.The Togo international returned to the Emirates Stadium with the Eagles on Sunday, and his introduction from the bench was probably the highlight of what was a largely forgettable afternoon in north London.Alexis Sanchez had opened the scoring on the stroke of half-time, but Yannick Bolasie struck a deserved equaliser late on to seal a 1-1 draw, which sees the Gunners remain in fourth place.The arrival of Adebayor on 64 minutes attracted the most noise within the stadium, however, although the 32-year-old insists he will ‘forget about all the haters’ after being roundly jeered by the Gunners faithful.“It is not my first time coming back to play against Arsenal at the Emirates,” he said.“You can see when I was on the bench and warming up and they were booing me I was just laughing. I cannot say I’m used to it because it is not good to get used to this kind of stuff.“But at the end of the day it is funny, the weather was good, we were playing in London and 20 minutes from my house, I have to be happy. If I’m not happy then something is wrong.“For me, at the end of the day I have to be happy about where I came from and what I have become today – I have to forget about all the haters.”Adebayor left Arsenal for Manchester City in 2009 and sparked outrage among Gunners fans when he celebrated scoring for City by running the length of the field to celebrate in front of his old supporters.He has since gone on to play for fierce rivals Tottenham, before joining Palace in January, and knew he was always going to get a hostile reaction on another return to his former side.“All the Arsenal fans boo me and when I look back I understand where everything went wrong but there are certain things in life you cannot come back to any more. “You just look at it and say, ‘okay, I made a mistake’.“We all do things at some stage of our lives that we are not supposed to do, but the most important thing is to keep moving.” 1
