Ghana 2008 erases Nations Cup all time goal-scoring record

The ongoing Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Ghana Saturday erased the all-time record for the number of goals scored at a single Nations Cup tournament, after the goal tally reached 98. The tally increased from 92 to 98, after the third-place match between Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire in Kumasi produced six goals (4-2 in favour of Ghana). The previous record of 93 goals was held by the 1998 tournament in Burkina Faso. Cameroon’s Samuel Eto’o has already eclipsed the long-standing record of 14 individual, all-time goals scored at the Nations Cup, held by Ivorian Laurent Pokou.
