Black Stars captain Andre Ayew has entered into the annals of African football history with his goal in Friday's 1-1 draw against Gabon making it his tenth goal in the African Cup of Nations.

The Al Sadd forward has joined an elite group of company of players who have scored ten goals in the African Cup of Nations tournament.

Ghana scored in the first half through captain Andre Ayew's long range strike from outside the penalty box but late on the Gabonese pulled parity.

The Al Sadd forward sold the Gabon defender a dummy and shot from the edge of the D into the right bottom corner to hand Ghana the lead.

Ayew joins the likes of Samuel Eto'o, Kalusha Bwalya and compatriot Asamoah Gyan to have scored in four different AFCON tournaments.

The goal makes him the highest scoring Ghanaian at the African Cup of Nations as he has now scored ten goals more than Asamoah Gyan who scored 8 and Osei Kofi who scored 7.

He scored his first goal at the 2010 AFCON in a 1-0 win against Burkina Faso at the group stage and also scored at the 2012, 2015,2017 and 2019 tournaments.
