Since the 1990’s, African countries and footballers have featured far more at world footballs top table.
Although no African team is yet to reach further than the quarter finals at the World Cup, their individual footballers have been recognised for their talents.
In 1995 George Weah became the only African player to ever win FIFA World Player of the Year, while other players such as Roger Milla and Jay-Jay Okocha dazzled at some of Europes elite clubs.
The aforementioned players paved the way for todays African footballers to make their mark on world football and for some to be considered amongst the greatest of their generation.
Such talent has invariably seen them be well rewarded financially and many of Africas modern day greatest feature on this list ofÂ Africas richest current footballers.
