Dream Team VI star forward Oghenekaro Etebo is the leading scorer at the CAF U23 AFCON in Senegal with three goals from four games.
All his goals were from the penalty spot as was the case with Flying Eagles skipper Musa Mohammed, who scored four goals to finish as top scorer at the African Youth Championship also in Senegal in March.
Etebo’s compatriot Junior Ajayi is among those trailing him on the goals chart with two goals.
Other players on two goals are Zinedine Ferhat (Algeria), Haythem Jouini (Tunisia), Ibrahima Keita (Senegal), Menzi Masuku and Gift Motupa (South Africa).
Nigeria face Algeria in the championship final tonight, while South Africa battle hosts Senegal for the third place and the remaining automatic Rio Olympic ticket.
Gabon won the inaugural U23 AFCON in Morocco four years, but they did not qualify for this tournament.
