The 2017 AFCON winners finished third in their qualifying group behind Zambia and Nigeria, the third time since 1982 the Lions have failed to qualify for a World Cup.

Hugo Broos has been nominated for CAF Coach of the Year award alongside Héctor Cúper, Hussein Amotta, Gemot Rohr and Mihayo Kazembe, after guiding Cameroon to the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations title, where they defeated Egypt 2-1 in the final.

The 65-year-old has revealed before that he turned down several managerial jobs after his Africa Cup of Nations triumph, including an offer from Cairo giants Al Ahly.

He has also been selected as Manager of the year four times in Belgium while he managed Club Brugge, Anderlecht and KRC Genk. The Belgian was also in charge of Trabzonspor, Panserraikos, JS Kabylie, Zulte Waregem and most recently Hussein Dey.
