Ghana midfielder Andre Dede Ayew ranks among the top scorers at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea.
The 25-year-old is among the four players who sit at the summit of the top scorers chart with two goals.
The former Ghana Under-20 captain scored against Senegal from the spot, and also grabbed Ghana’s winning goal against South Africa last Tuesday.
He is joined by Congo’s Thievy Bifouma, Max Gradel of Ivory Coast, and Tunisia’s Ahmed Akaichi.
Ayew has so far grabbed five goals in his Afcon adventure, having scored a goal at the 2010 Afcon, two goals at the 2012 edition, and two at the on-going tournament.
Ghana will meet either Guinea or Mali in the quarter-finals as Caf prepares to draw lots since the two sides remained inseparable after their group campaign.
