Goals and assists from African players abroad: October 28-30

Many thought that Eric Choupo-Moting’s usefulness for Bayern Munich might have expired but the Cameroonian international has filled in admirably to distract Bayern’s supporters from the departure of Robert Lewandowski. The 33-year-old forward now has six goals and three assists in his last five matches and joined reigning CAF Player of the Year Sadio Mané in contributing to Bayern’s 6-2 demolition of Mainz over the weekend. The Bayern duo join Nigeria’s Victor Osimhen as the stars in our column this week on goals and assists from African players abroad with Osimhen moving up to the top of the Serie A goal chart with a hat-trick for on fire Napoli
