Adebayor wins African POY

In a poll of coaches and African national team captains, the Togo/Arsenal star won.

He beat out Michael Essien (Ghana/Chelsea) and Mohamed Aboutrika (Egypt/Al-Ahly) for his first major award.
"I'm highly honoured by what I have done in African football and now that the World Cup is coming close and is in Africa, we'll work hard to win the championship."
Chelsea's Salomon Kalou was named young footballer of the year.
