The striker achieved the feat in just 103 appearances, making his goal-per-game ratio one of the best on the continent.

Having already beaten Abedi Ayew Pele’s record of goals to become Ghana’s all-time top-scorer, the on-loan Al Ahi striker reached another landmark after becoming just the SIX player from Africa to score 50 international goals – Samuel Eto’o and Didier Drogba are among that list.

The striker has received praise for his achievements so far, and international team-mate Christian Atsu has also added his voice.

The Newcastle United winger has described the Black Stars skipper as a blessing to Ghana, while also congratulating him for his latest haul.
