Sadio Mané one of the best young African player at this moment. His strength, dribbling terrorize a lot of defense in EPL.

28 Steven Pienaar
29 Tony Yeboah

Yeboah scored 25 goals in 48 league appearances for Leeds United, but that only tells part of the story - he set the Premier League alight with some of the most ferocious goals we have ever seen, with a huge grin fixed to his face.
Yeboah loved to score for his national side, too - he bagged 29 goals in 59 appearances, the second highest goalscoring total in the nation's history behind Abedi Pele.
Two years in England may not have resulted in any trophies but his gift to the league was some great goals. He even managed to win back-to-back Goal of the Month awards in 1995.
