Who will be the AFCON 2019 Top Highest Goal Scorers?
Four players are tied on three goals each, ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations semi-final fixtures.
They are Odion Ighalo (Nigeria), Cédric Bakambu (Congo DR), Sadio Mane (Senegal) and Adam Ounas (Algeria).
However, only three are still in the race to win the Golden Boot, as Bakambu’s country has been eliminated in the Round of 16.
The Super Eagles will be looking to Ighalo, when they take on Algeria on Sunday, while Mane is the Teranga Lions’ danger man as they play Tunisia.
Ounas should be in action when Algeria clash with Nigeria for a place in the AFCON final.

Could Odion Ighalo Be The Tournament’s Highest Goalscorer?
With four teams left in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON), the tournament is heating up. Nigeria and Algeria will square off tonight, and just as we expect the Super Eagles to win, we are also looking forward to seeing Odion Ighalo become the highest goalscorer in the tournament.
You will recall that Nigeria made it into this year’s AFCON in the first place because of Ighalo’s outstanding performances during the qualifiers. The 30-year-old recorded a total of seven goals to finish as the highest goalscorer, making fans very proud along the way.
As Nigeria steps into the AFCON Semi-finals, it’s starting to look like Ighalo is on his way to pulling off the same feat again. One of the most valuable players on the team, he now has a total of three goals – the same as Senegal’s Sadio Mané and Algeria’s Adam Ounas.
Although Ighalo has said he prefers the trophy to the AFCON Golden Boot, they’re thankfully not mutually exclusive. As he’s making efforts to score to give the Super Eagles their much-needed lead, he’s also creating chances of adding more goals under his belt.
We won’t be surprised to see him emerge the top scorer if Nigeria goes all the way to the finals.
