African trio divide Golden Boot prize

DR

The trio of African strikers, led by Gabonese Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Egyptian Mohamed Salah and Senegalese Sadio Mané, all of them with 22 goals, shared the Golden Boot trophy

They finished in the first position of the list of the best scorers of the Premier League, the official name of the English league. This is the third time since the creation of the Premier League (1992/ 93) that the best scorer trophy is shared by three athletes. The first time was in 1997/98, between Chris Sutton, Dion Dublin and Michael Owen, and the second in 1998/99, having Michael Owen, Dwight Yorke and Jimmy Hasselbaink, were drawn.
Salah, the 26-year-old forward from Liverpool, reached the final round in the lead but, having gone blank, he saw team-mate Mané, 27, match him. In the last game of the reds, on Sunday, Sadio shook the Wolverhampton's goal's net twice.
