Equatorial Guinea captain Emilio Nsue Lopez is the highest goal scorer at AFCON 2023 with a total of five goals in three games under his belt in the competition's group stage.

This is an unprecedented outcome as the 34-year-old who currently plays his football at the club level at the third-tier Spanish club CF Intercity in Alicante, plays as a defender for his club side.

Nsue is being deployed as a forward at the country level for Equatorial Guinea and has proven to be clinical and effective in that role as he scored his country's first hattrick at AFCON in 16 years in the 4-2 thumping and mauling of Guinea-Bissau before following up with a brace in the 2-0 victory over the hosts, Ivory Coast.
