Ghana and Al Ahli of UAE striker Asamoah Gyan was on target for the 50th time for the Black Stars in their 5-0 victory over Ethiopia.

Gyan joined the likes of former Zambian international Godfrey Chitalu, Egypt's Hossan Hassan, Ivorian great Didier Drogba and Cameroonian and four-time Africa footballer of the year Samuel Eto'o as the only African players to score 50 or more goals for their nation.
