Aboubakar Vincent attended the final of the 2021 African Cup of Nations and was seen from the presidential stand.
The captain of the Indomitable Lions had to wait for the medal ceremony to receive his trophy – that of top scorer of the 33rd edition of the competition.
He scored eight goals in seven games at the competition.
The Cameroonian is now level with Laurent Pokou of Ivory Coast who did 8 goals at the 1970 AFCON.
Only Pierre Ndaye Mulamba of Dr. Congo has more goals than Aboubakar in a single AFCON tournament as he scored nine goals in 1974 (9 goals in 1974 with Zaire now Dr. Congo).
