The former Black Stars skipper made goal scoring an easy business. He was a schemer cum scorer. He played most of his great football for Ghana before she attained independence. C.K Gyamfi played for Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak, before he won a deal to ply his trade in the German league with Fortuna Dusseldorf.

Edward Acquah

The former Eleven Wise and Real Republicans scored 40 goals for the Black Stars and was Ghana's joint top scorer in international football before Gyan scored 41 goals to beat that record.

Edward Acquah bagged a brace when Ghana defeated Sudan in the final of the 1963 Africa Cup of Nations to become champions of Africa.

He won league titles with both Eleven Wise and Real Republicans.

Wilberforce Kwadwo Mfum

The Bulldozer as he was affectionately called produced much excitement with his thunderbolt shots. He tore the net twice as a footballer. Mfum scored Ghana’s first goal in the Africa Cup of Nations against Tunisia in 1963- a goal that tore the net at the Accra Sports Stadium.

He scored 29 goals for the Black Stars and won league titles with Asante Kotoko. Wilberforce Mfum won the top scorer in the Ghanaian topflight league while playing for Asante Kotoko and also captained the Porcupine Warriors to reach their first continental final.

Kwesi Owusu

The former Bofoakwa striker was deadly in front of goal. He scored 40 goals for the Black Stars and was Ghana’s all-time joint top scorer until Asamoah Gyan broke that record recently.

He was part of the Black Stars team that finished runners-up in the 1968 and 1970 Africa Cup of Nations.

Dan Owusu

Dan played for the Black Stars in the 1970’s. Dan Owusu, however, made a huge mark in club football during his days at Bofoakwa than his contribution to the Black Stars . He emerged as the first player to win the goal king in the Ghanaian topflight league in three consecutive seasons, a record which was only equaled by Ishmael Addo in 2001.

Tony Yeboah

He was the Ghanaian player with the best international appeal. Tony Yeboah was the first African footballer to win the top scorer’s award in the German Bundesliga when plying his trade for Frankfurt. He also won the top scorer in the Ghanaian topflight league with Corners Stones before he moved abroad for greener pastures.

Tony Yeboah as a Black Stars player scored 29 goals and was part of the Black Stars team that reached the final of the 1992 Africa Cup of Nations.
