Asamoah Gyan, a Ghanaian and the Black Stars skipper has been called the greatest score of all the time in the tournament. He has scored six times; registering his first World Cup goal in 2006 and that goal became the fastest goal of the Cup. He broke Roger Milla’s record that was held for 30 years from an African in the FIFA World Cup.

Roger Milla

Roger Milla has five goals to his record and has being respected around the continent. In the 1990 World Cup, he scored four goals that were each celebrated with a unique dance. In 1994, he made a name for himself as he scored, making him the oldest goal scorer in a World Cup tournament. He is from Cameroon.

Samuel Eto’o

Samuel Eto’o registered his first goal in the 2002 FIFA World Cup and went on to add another two goals. He currently holds the all-time top scorer in African Cup of Nations.

Papa Bouba Diop

Papa Bouba Diop brought France, the then reigning World champion to her feet when his goal defeated them in the 2002 FIFA World Cup. He ended his reign with three goals and scored twice when his team played against Uruguay.

You should know that we didn’t add African players with one or two goals in the World Cup. The good news is that players will still beat this record as the years sweep by. Who knows the country where the highest goal scorer for World Cup will come from in Africa?
