The Most Talented African Players in EPL
The most talented African players in the English Premier League. Africa is a huge Continent and a place where the spirit of Football flies higher than any other in the world.
The countries in South Africa have produced some of the most skilled, talented and powerful footballers to have ever graced the English Premier League with their presence.
The African style of football is powerful, fast and exciting but the fact of the matter is that their style of football lacks a vital component and that is why they have not won a single World Cup.
African players should be proud of the fact that some of them go to the biggest leagues in the world and shine, even though they all come from the same alleyways and played football in the same muddy grounds. Some people believe that if Africa were given football academies and the right resources, like the ones players get in Europe, then African players may shine to be the best in the World.
So here is a list of 10 African Players that are rated as the best in the world, but before that is a list of very skilled footballers who could not make the list.
Salmon Kalou-Ivory Coast/Chelsea
Peter Odemwinge-Nigeria/West Bromwich Albion
Danny Shittu-Nigeria/Bolton Wanderers
John Mensah-Ghana/Sunderland (on loan from Lyon)
Steve Gohouri-Ivory Coast/Wigan Athletic
