Ghana's Asamoah Gyan is Africa's all-time leading scorer in World Cup history.


Despite the shameful exit  all or most of Africa's representatives had at the ongoing World Cup, there is  one silver lining for Africa as Black Stars striker Asamoah Gyan became the leading African goalscorer in World Cup history.

Ghana crashed out of the World Cup at the group stage following several bonus rows and indiscipline in the Ghanaian camp. The Ghanaian strikers scored a total of six (6) goals in their short lived World Cup campaign. The 28-ear-old held the title of the first African to score in three World Cup finals, after he netted against Germany in Ghana's previous Group G fixture, and his sixth goal placed him in the number 1 spot ahead of Cameroonian legend Roger Mila's 5 World Cup goal record for Africa.
