Afcon dished up dishy players

The Africa Cup of Nations is slowly coming to an end and we had every reason to smile throughout the tournament.

Most of these footballers are very famous within our continent and all over the world, because of their talent, professional skill and, of course, handsomeness.

Here are our favourite footballers, who kept us glued to the television week after steamy week. Get ready for some full contact ladies and tell us which one is your favourite.

South Africa
Baby-faced Dean Furman – my goodness, this man has proven to be the footy player in Afcon 2013. He also plays for the English League One club Oldham Athletic.

Ivory Coast
Salomon Kalou is striker for Lille. He was an integral part of his former club Chelsea as he helped Roman’s Abromovich team win the Uefa Champions League, two Premier League titles, two League Cups and three FA Cup titles. On the international level Salomon has earned over 40 caps.

The youthful Medhi Gregory Giuseppe Lacen is a 29-year-old Algerian professional footballer who plays for Getafe CF in La Liga as a defensive midfielder.

Cape Verde Islands
Babanco’s full name is Elvis Manuel Monteiro Macedo. He was born in Praia, the capital city of Cape Verde, in 1985. Many say the 28-year-old player has Usher’s (Rhythm and Blues singer) features. He plays for S. Olhanense in Portugal as a midfielder.

Ivory Coast
Gnégnéri Yaya Touré is a versatile player who plays for Manchester City. Yaya is so much fun to look at on the field, as he has proven to be creative enough to help the attack, making assists and scoring. The Ivorian has been named the 2012 African Player of the Year for the second year in succession. However this guy seems to handle the pressure (and the fame) pretty well….

Mamona Lama is an Angolan goalkeeper born on 1 February 1981 in Luanda. He is commonly known as Lamá and also plays for Petro Luanda in the Girabola.

Burkina Faso
Bakary Koné, born in Ouagadougou, is a Burkinabé footballer who plays as a defender for French club Lyon. The 25-year-old retains that boy-next-door feel.

The dance maestro, Asomoah Gyan, is known for his dance moves after scoring. The ex Udinese, Rennes and Sunderland hitman is still considered Ghana’s best striker. Off the field he is a musician. He recorded a Hiplife song with Castro The Destroyer. In 2011 he won the Ghana Music Awards.

Seydou Keita is a versatile player who plays a central or defensive midfielder role and captains the Mali team. He used to play for Barcelona. He's not a big talker and doesn't make many headlines and is the kind of man who looks scary and plays scary…he proved that with Reneilwe Letsholonyane’s tackle.

Ikechukwu Uche is a Nigerian and Villarreal CF, in Spain, striker. The 29-year-old player is capable of stirring up the ball to make his opponents dizzy and is also known for his acrobatic goal celebration.

Emmanuel Adebayor, the Togolese international, plays as a striker for Tottenham Hotspur and he has managed to win the affection of many fans around the world.

This list wouldn’t be complete without Ghanaian goalkeeper Adam Larsen, who has proven to be the eye candy of the tournament. Born in Norway to a Norwegian mother and Ghanaian father, he holds both a Ghanaian and a Norwegian passport.
