The former FC Porto star has been exceptional for the Indomitable Lion of Cameroon since the beginning of the tournament, and his excellent performance has never gone unnoticed.
The 29 years old was at his best for the team again on Saturday evening, as he came from the bench to score two late goals in his team’s comeback victory.
Vincent Aboubakar’s impressive goal scoring form for Cameroon national team started with a brace against Burkina Faso national team, he also scored two goals against Ethiopia national team and he scored a goal each against Cape Verde and Comoros, before scoring another brace against Burkina Faso on Saturday night.
