Run-down of African goalscorers in Europe


Samuel Eto'o has taken his goal tally in Italy to 23 in 26 games this season
Cameroon star Samuel Eto'o - the CAF African Footballer of the Year - took his goal tally to 23 for the season as he scored twice for Inter Milan in their 4-1 thumping of Bologna at the weekend.

Eto'o also created Inter's opening goal of the game, scored by Dejan Stankovic, and was given a standing ovation when he was substituted late on in the game.



Senegal's Papiss Demba Cisse returned to the top of the Bundesliga scoring charts but missed out on the chance of a hat-trick at the weekend. He missed a penalty but scored twice from open play as his side Freiburg came from behind to draw 2-2 with St Pauli and now has 15 goals in the campaign.

Didier Ya Konan of Ivory Coast scored with one minute remaining of Hannover's match with Eintracht Franckfurt, which they won 3-0 - he has now taken his tally to 10 goals for the season so far.



Morocco striker Youssef Al Arabi got his 11th goal of the season after finding the back of the net for his side Caen who beat Brest 3-1.

Mali defenderEric Chelle put the ball into his own net as his side Lens still beat St Etienne 2-1.

Ivory Coast striker Gervinho and his Senegal team-mate Moussa Sow were both target to give Lille 2-0 win over Nice. Sow is now the top scorer in Ligue 1 with 15 goals, two more than his nearest rival.

Mali striker Modibo Maiga put Sochaux ahead at the Parc des Princes but they went down 2-1 to Paris Saint-Germain.


Former Senegal striker Henri Camara was on target for the second time this season as he contributed in Atomitos' 4-2 win over Kerkyra.

Algeria midfielder Djamel Abdoun was on target twice for Kavala but his side lost 4-2 to Panathinaikos.



Senegal striker Baba Diawara and Cape Verdean Sidnei were both on the score sheet as their side Maritimo overcame Vitoria Setubal 4-2.

Guinea Bissau defender Kevin Gomis pulled a late goal back for Naval who were beaten 3-1 by league leaders Porto

Nigerian and West Ham Striker Osaze Odemwingie although missed a penalty played against Manchester United, came back after an injury and (according to him) with the help of his psychologist he top the number of goal scorers by 8 goals in his club this season, and he promised more goals before the season runs out.
