Afcon Top Goalscorers 2004-2012
2. 2006 - Eto'o
Samuel Eto'o holds the record for the most goals scored in the Africa Cup of Nations tournament for a reason: He is a prolific and unstoppable goalscorer. Eto'o's five goals during the 2006 edition were largely down to a magnificent hat-trick against Angola in Cameroon's opening game of the tournament. The sublime forward could not inspire his team in the latter stages of the competition, as they were overcome by Cote d'Ivoire during an epic 11-12 penalty shootout loss.
