African goals in Europe
The BBC’s weekly round up of all the African goal scorers across the top leagues in Europe.
Drogba came off the bench and scored, but then missed a penalty.
Didier Drogba of Ivory Coast and Chelsea had a very mixed weekend. The striker was dropped to the bench for Chelsea’s English Premier League match with Tottenham Hotspur.
As the Blues’ challenge faltered he was brought on at half-time and scored to level things at 1-1. But as the game went into injury time, Chelsea were awarded a penalty. Drogba stepped up to take it only to see his shot saved by Spurs’ keeper Heurelho Gomes.
Elsewhere in the Premier League, Yaya Toure of Ivory Coast and Manchester City scored his club’s first goal in their 3-1 win over West Ham United.
Senegal striker Mame Biram Diouf was on target for Blackburn, but his goal was not enough to save his team from a 2-1 defeat at Bolton.
Nigerian striker Edward Ofere scored his third goal of the season to help Lecce to a 3-2 home victory over Chievo.
Fredi Kanoute of Mali was the only African on target in Spain as well – getting a consolation goal for Sevilla as they went down 3-1 to Almeria at home.
Cameroon striker Vincent Aboubakar came on as a second-half substitute to equalise for Valenciennes with eight minutes remaining but two minutes later his side conceded a late winner to Paris Saint Germain.
Papiss Demba Cisse is the joint top scorer in Germany’s Bundesliga.
Ivory Coast striker Didier Ya Konan scored twice for Hanover – who beat Stuttgart 2-1. Konan has now taken his tally for the season to nine goals.
But he is still some way behind Senegal’s Papiss Demba Cisse, who is the Bundesliga’s joint top scorer with 13 goals. He got two more in Freiburg’s 3-0 win over Borussia Monchengladbach.
