The 2019 African Cup Of Nations has just been concluded in Egypt with Algeria Champions of Africa this year.
A total of 102 goals were scored at the AFCON 2019 and CAF has now shortlisted the five best goals from the tournament.
Riyad Mahrez (Algeria) Vs Nigeria
Algeria Desert Foxes’ winger, Riyad Mahrez’s stoppage-time free-kick goal which secured the AFCON 2019 final berth for the north Africans at the expense of Nigeria’s Super Eagles was an absolute beauty.
Odion Ighalo (Nigeria) Vs Burundi
Odion Ighalo’s goal in the Super Eagles’ 1-0 win against Burundi in Group B had a touch of class in it’s execution.
Ola Aina cowed the opposition’s defence with a nifty back-heeled pass that put Ighalo clear on goal. And the eventual tournament top scorer brilliantly curled the ball into the far net.
Ibrahim Amanda (Madagascar) Vs Dr Congo
Madagaacar player, Ibrahim Amanda’s goal against Congo DR in the Round of 16 was deftly executed leaving many thumbing it up as the most beautiful goal of the tournament
Adama Traore (Mali) Vs Mauritania
Traore scored his highly rated goal against Mauritania which many labelled ‘magnificent’. He curled a surprise shot into the net to set tongues wagging in sheer admiration of his effort.
Krepin Diatta (Senegal) Vs Tanzania
Another exceptional AFCON 2019 goal is Senegal’s Krepin Diatta’s strike against Tanzania in their first Group C match.
