Goal scoring statistics of Black Stars strikers invited for AFCON 2021


Ghana’s striking department has been one of the biggest headaches for coach Milovan Rajevac ahead of the start of the African Cup of Nations.

Although the coach has initiated attempts to get a better and prolific goal scorer in the national team, his efforts have proven futile.

However, it appears, most of the players have hit good form for their clubs this season than for the national team.

Here are the statistics of Ghanaian strikers invited for AFCON 2021

Jordan Ayew

The Crystal Palace forward man has scored the least goals among the five strikers in the Black Stars squad for AFCON.

Jordan has played a total of 17 matches for Crystal Palace this season and has found back of the net once.

The striker has also contributed to two goals which have seen him earn 13 starting roles in Patrick Viera’s team.

Felix Afena Gyan

The youngest striker in the Black Stars squad has scored 2 out of the games he has featured for AS Roma this season.
