And also, as the goal-scoring chart stands; Host Nation frontman - Vincent Aboubakar leads the chart by four-goals followed by teammate Karl Toko Ekambi with two-goals same as Malawi forward - Gabadinho Mhango, and other sets of players with one-goal scored each - the likes of Moses Simon, Samuel Chukwueze, Taiwo Awoniyi, Kelechi Iheanacho - Nigeria; Gustavo Sangaré, Hassane Bandé - Burkina Faso; Selim Amallah, Sofiane Boufal, Zakaria Aboukhlal - Morocco; Ablie Jallow - Gambia; Max Gradel - Ivory Coast; Sadio Mané - Senegal; Ibrahima Kone - Mali; Issiaga Sylla - Guinea; Dawa Hotessa - Ethiopia; André Ayew - Ghana; Mohamed Salah - Egypt; Walieldin Khidir - Sudan; Aaron-Salem Boupendza, Jim Allevinah - Gabon; Júlio Tavares - Cape Verde; Ishmael Wadi - Zimbabwe.
So as it stands Comoros and Guinea-Bissau haven't registered a goal yet after playing their second game.
With all being said, as the 2021 AFCON is concerned - Samuel Chukwueze from Nigeria has scored the fastest goal so far which is under 3-minutes. The Villarreal star after a back-hill assist from a teammate Moses Simon placed it comfortably past the Sudan goalie.

The left-foot midfielder has started only 4 games for the outfit this season plus 13 subs in all competitions and hopes the Spanish side will reconsider his playing time after this tournament.
