Cameroon international, Vincent Aboubakar has now scored three goals at the newly constructed 60000 capacity Olembe Sports Complex.
The 29-year-old scored twice as Cameroon beat Burkina Faso 2-1 in the first match of the 33rd edition of TotalEnergies Africa cup of nations.
His first goal at this edifice came in a world cup qualifying match against Malawi in September last year, as he benefited from a Kunde Malong assist to scored what went down in history as the first-ever player to score at the iconic sports arena.
Scoring a brace means, he has now scored 29 goals for Cameroon in 81 appearances and he is just 4 goals behind the great Patrick Mboma, who is on 33 international goals for Cameroon.
Only Omam Biyik, Patrick Mboma, Roger Miller and Samuel Eto’o have scored more goals for Cameroon than the Al-Nasssr FC forward.
It should be noted that the 29-year-old has scored five goals for Al-Nassr FC, with three assist in 15 appearances this season.
Next assignment for Aboubakar and his teammates is against Ethiopia on Thursday January 13, 2022 at 4pm at the Olembe Sports Complex.
