WAFU 2019: Black Stars captain Shafiu Mumuni grabs top scorer award
Shafiu Mumuni scored four goals to finish as top scorer for the 2019 WAFU Cup of Nations tournament.
The Ashanti Gold captain led the Black Stars to the finals of the competition only to lose on penalties to Senegal.
Shafiu scored against Burkina Faso in the quarterfinals and got three goals against Cote d’ Ivoire in the semi-finals.
Despite Ghana’s failure to defend the title, the 24-year-old came out with honors by winning the top scorer accolade and also making history as the first player to score a hat-trick in the WAFU Cup of Nations tournament.
