Ghana's No. 1

Agyemang-Badu revels in historic Nations Cup goal

Published on: 02 February 2012

Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu has revealed he was oblivious that he had made a piece of history by scoring Ghana's 100th Nations Cup goal but expressed his excitement. 

The 21-year-old scored a goal of the tournament contender when he blasted home a classy volley from 20-yards after 28 minutes for the opener-his debut Nations Cup goal.

But the celebrations were cut by a first half extra-time equalizer by Razzagui Camara in the 1-1 draw on Wednesday night.

It was his fourth international goal for the Black Stars as an offensive midfielder.

Badu was excited to know he had etched his name in Ghana's history books.

"I didn't know anything about it. I'm very happy to score this 100th goal. I have to continue like this and focus on Tunisia," Badu said.

I'm really really happy and I thank God it (goal) came."

Wilberforce Mfum scored Ghana first Nations Cup goal at the 1963 finals on home soil.
