In this blog piece I have collated Nigeria's records at the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON). What is clear is that some of those records would have been more impressive if maximum dictator Sani Abacha had not withdrawn the team from the 1996 tournament and also caused Nigeria's absence in 1998 due to suspension. But also the team's failure to qualify for the 2012, 2015, and 2017 tournaments cost players like Vincent Enyeama and Mikel Obi some individual records as well.

There are still some records that new players can erase. For instance, the most goals scored by a Nigerian player in a game is a brace on multiple occasions. Most assists in a game is just two from Nwankwo Kanu back in 2006. Most goals in a tournament by an individual is four accomplished two times by Rashidi Yekini and once by Augustine Okocha.

Didn't Emenike win golden boot in 2013 for scoring 4 goals in the tourney?

Maceo4,

Thanks. I just realized why you posted the Emenike stat. I have added him to the list of those who have scored four in an AFCON. Thanks for pointing out that error.

YemiBrazil,

Yoking had four and not five goals. I believe that you have counted a goal scored during the penalty shootout. If that is the fifth goal then it does not count. Those penalty shoot scores are simply tie breakers and do not count. Remember that the official results of such a game is a draw. Nigeria simply moved on via a tie breaker.

That's wrong! Kanu actually had 3 assists in one game. Go rewatch the game against Tunisia at afcon 2000. The game ended 4 : 2 in favour of Nigeria

5 goals. Tie breaker makes it 6. Yemibrezia, I believe, even posted the videos for you.

If you read the note accompanying the record it points out that the data with assists only goes from 2006 to date. Unfortunately, it fails to include data before then including several assists by Oliseh as well in 1994 one is presently unable to vouch for them 100%. I will add an asterisk to attract attention to the note.

Okay. I see that now. I also see the text on his goals and five is correct. I earlier thought he was getting five from the tie breaker. I will correct the blog.
