Demba Ba Shortlisted
Along with Papiss Cisse and Cheick Tiote, Ba was included on a 34 player (not so short) list to be crowned 2012 African Player Of The Year.
That has now been shortened to ten players and while Cisse and Tiote have fallen by the wayside, Demba has made the ten, alongside the likes of Didier Drogba as well as other Premier League players such as Mikel, Gervinho (eh???) and Yaya Toure.
The list of ten will then be further shortened to three later this month and then the winner announced at a ceremony before the turn of the year.
Currently second top scorer in the Premier League, one behind Robin Van Persie, Ba has the opportunity for a quite brilliant season both for his club and country, as well as personal awards.
