A goal, the holy grail of football. Every footballer wants to do it, and every fan wants to see it.

The Africa Cup of Nations having hosted many of these goals, we decided to brush up on our number skills by finding four interesting scoring facts.

Check out this video, and see if you can play along.

    it is good information and specially people who live in western hemisphere are totally disconnected from African regional sport like Africa Cup of Nation(ACN )& All African Games. Lack of a strong dynamic website dedicated for Africa sport causes distortion of facts and truth about the past .
    Keep up the good work!
