Teams: AFC Ajax Amsterdam
Hmmm, I'd say my three choices are:
Drogba because he is getting more and more important for Chelsea with every week. He is firing on all cylinders right now, look at the goal of yesterday. He even has Shevchenko dwelling in his shadow. I have always been a big fan of his and I think he is a very important player in one of the best teams around.
Eto'o has been marvellous as well for Barça. I might give him the nod because of the fact that Eto'o and Barça won the ChL, the ultimate trophy last year.
Essien is my third pick. He was influential for Ghana at the world cup and although I think Appiah was even more influential, I think that Essien has kept up the pace at club level, whereas Appiah is not all that at the moment at his club. If I look at the way Essien played yesterday, I see the number 1 African midfielder at the moment.
My pick: Eto'o
