    ​Veli Mothwa - South Africa

    The Bafana Bafana shot-stopper has not yet conceded a goal in the ongoing competition. He has been involved in three games, ensuring his defenders did the job well, before being rested in the final Group A game against Lesotho. He will be key against Mozambique in the last four.

    ​Justin Shonga - Zambia

    It was quite unfortunate for the Cape Town City striker to bow out of the competition even after managing to score three goals for the Chipolopolo. Ironically, he had not scored any goal for his club in the 12 PSL matches he had been involved in. He has definitely proved his doubters wrong.
  4. Victor Letsoalo of Bloemfontein Celtic

    ​Victor Letsoalo - South Africa

    The attacker made his debut for Bafana Bafana against Lesotho and did not hesitate to show what he is capable of. The forward hit a hat-trick to ensure the hosts reached the last four. The striker will definitely be considered when Bafana Bafana take on Namibia in their next assignment.

    ​Abu Diop - Senegal

    The Teranga Lion has been influential with his three goals playing a huge role in ensuring the West Africans make it to the semis. He is a natural hard worker and the chances of his teams qualifying for the final partly lies with him. At just 19-years-old, he has underlined his quality.

    ​Elmo Kambindu - Namibia

    The 28-year-old scored three goals for his team hoping to inspire them to the last four, which, unfortunately, was not the case. His experience has been vital; he knows when to hold up play, pass and when to score as well. Too bad his journey has been cut short.
