African Football Confederation (CAF) announced on Tuesday that Basel’s Egyptian forward Mohamed Salah has made its three-man shortlist for the 2012 most promising talent award.

The list included Senegalese forward Pape Moussa Konate, who plays for Russian side FC Krasnodar, and Celtic’s Kenyan midfielder Victor Wanyama.

Salah has put in some impressive displays with Egypt’s national teams this year, which helped him join Swiss side Basel from Egyptian side Arab Contractors last summer.

The 22-year-old was Egypt’s best performer in the Olympic Games, scoring four goals but his side were eliminated at the last-16 stage at the hands of Japan.

The talented forward also became a key player in Egypt’s senior team squad as coach Bob Bradley relied on him as a regular starter. The American boss said he is preparing him to lead the team’s frontline in the near future.

Salah, who also made a fine start to his Basel adventure, is the second Egyptian to be nominated for a CAF award this year after Ahly’s forward Mohamed Abou-Treika, who was shortlisted for the Best African-based Player award.  

The 2012 Awards Gala will be held on December 20 at the Banquet Hall, State House, Accra.
