Who makes the Goal Africa Team of the Month for August 2019?

  • Chiamaka Nnadozie

    Goalkeeper: Chiamaka Nnadozie

    The 2019 Women's World Cup breakout star followed up her outstanding showing in France with heroic goalkeeping in Nigeria's African Games triumph in Morocco

    The 18-year-old Rivers Angels custodian saved three times from the spot as Nigeria came from behind to pip Cameroon on penalties to win the title for the first time in 12 years.

  • Hamari Traore Etienne Didot Rennes Guingamp Ligue 1 04022018

    Defender: Hamari Traore

    It's been an excellent start to the season for the Mali full-back.

    Stade de Rennes have conceded just two goals in four games, with victories away at Montpellier and Strasbourg, not to mention at home against Paris Saint-Germain, the highlights.

    Traore also weighed in with assists against Strasbourg, and the equalising pass to set up M’Baye Niang en route to victory against PSG.

  • Joel Matip Liverpool 2019-20

    Defender: Joel Matip

    While Liverpool’s other African stars typically steal the headlines, Matip has bounced back from his Community Shield snub to reclaim his starting spot in Jurgen Klopp’s side.

    As well as coming off the bench to score against Manchester City at Wembley, he netted in the win at Arsenal, and was part of a fine defensive display against both Southampton and Burnley.

  • Erick Mathoho Kaizer Chiefs,  August 2019

    Defender: Erick Mathoho

    Tower has shown glimpses of his old form, making a series of excellent defensive contributions so far this term.

    He’s also scored two important goals to help Kaizer Chiefs maintain their top spot on the PSL log.

  • Arthur Masuaku, West Ham United vs. Fulham

    Defender: Arthur Masuaku

    Now one of the most underrated full-backs in the Premier League, Masuaku has come a long way since his early uncertain showings in the top flight.

    After strong showings in the 1-1 draw at Brighton & Hove Albion, and the 3-1 victory at Watford, Masuaku also weighed in with a decisive assist in the 2-0 victory against Norwich City.

  • Hakim Ziyech - Ajax 2019-20

    Midfielder: Hakim Ziyech

    The Morocco playmaker has continued from where he left off last season by helping Ajax retain their spot at the summit of the Eredivisie table after four matches. 

    Ziyech scored five goals in the month in review, including four efforts in the Dutch top flight, and also laid on an assist as the reigning Sons of Gods remained unbeaten across all competitions.

  • Kenneth Muguna of Gor Mahia.

    Midfielder: Kenneth Muguna

    The 2016 Kenyan Premier League Most Valuable Player was appointed Gor Mahia captain to replace the departed Harun Shakava, and while captaining K’Ogalo is never easy, the Kenya international was ready for the challenge. 

    It takes a lion's heart to lead a star-studded teamlike Gor, and the added responsibilities have made the midfielder a better player. 

    Muguna has been directly involved in half of the goals Gor Mahia scored in all competitions in August; creating three and scoring two already. 

    The best was against Tusker in the KPL where he scored a brace and assisted twice as K'Ogalo hammered the Brewers 5-2 to start the season in style.

  • Mohamed Salah Roberto Firmino Liverpool

    Midfielder: Mohamed Salah

    Despite generating some negative headlines for failing to pass to Sadio Mane during Liverpool’s 3-0 victory against Burnley, prompting a theatrical reaction from his teammate in the process, Salah has enjoyed an excellent start to the new season.

    He’s scored three and contributed two assists in four Premier League games so far, and was also part of the Reds side that clinched the Uefa Super Cup.

  • Bradley Grobler, SuperSport United, August 2019

    Forward: Bradley Grobler

    The SuperSport United striker had a fantastic run in August, scoring five goals, and registering one assist in six matches across all competitions. 

    His run included four in four league matches for Kaitano Tembo's Matsatsantsa.

  • Tammy Abraham Chelsea 2019-20

    Forward: Tammy Abraham

    It’s been a mixed month for Abraham, who endured disgusting racist abuse in light of missing a penalty in Chelsea’s Super Cup shootout defeat by Liverpool.

    However, any doubts that he has the quality to be the Blues leading man were dismissed with two magnificent Premier League showings against Norwich City and Sheffield United.

    The Anglo-Nigerian forward broke his duck at Chelsea with a double against the Canaries, and then followed that up with another pair of strikes against the Blades.

  • Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting PSG

    Forward: Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting

    A figure of fun last term, Choupo-Moting has bounced back in style this season, making the most of the opportunities afforded to him by injuries to Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe.

    Neymar’s ongoing impasse at the Parc des Princes has further helped the Cameroon skipper step into an influential role, and he scored two off the bench against Toulouse, before hitting another to break the deadlock against Metz.
