Midfielder Mubarak Wakaso has become the fifth Ghanaian player to end up as the top scorer of an Africa Cup of Nations tournament.
With four goals and joint-top with Nigeria’s Emmanuel Emenike, the Spain-based enforcer has been named as the joint top scorer.
He becomes the fifth player from his country to achieve that feat.
Only four Ghanaian players – Ben Acheampong, Osei Kofi, Opoku Afriyie and George Alhassan – have finished the competition as top scorers before Wakaso burst onto the scene.
Wakaso gets the Golden Boot award in his maiden appearance in Africa’s flagship football tournament.
