The outstanding performers from the first legs of the CAF World Cup play-offs.
Goalkeeper: Charles Itandje
Cameroon set-up defensively with a colossal back four and muscular defensive midfielders. They subsequently failed to fashion many chances in attack, but were resolute in defence. The Carthage Eagles still managed to sneak a handful of chances in, the best of which fell to Ben Youssef and Chikhaoui. Itandje was there to snuff out any of the threats the Tunisians procured as he hung on for a valuable away clean sheet.
Right-back: Serge Aurier
The 20-year-old further cemented his place at right-back in the Ivorian starting XI with another tireless, swashbuckling workshop of what is expected from a modern full-back. If he keeps this up, we may never see the defensive indiscipline of Emmanuel Eboue in Ivorian colours again.
