Goals and assists from African players in European leagues: September 30-October 3

Not known for his goal scoring, Cameroon national team star midfielder André-Frank Zambo Anguissa provided two finishes for Napoli as the Serie A side cruised to victory over the weekend against Torino. Zambo Anguissa’s first two goals of the season in the opening quarter hour of Napoli’s 3-1 home victory leaves the Gli Azzurri in first place in Italy’s top division. Another African national team central midfielder sparked his team to victory in London as well with Ghana national team captain Thomas Partey’s delightful long range strike giving Arsenal the lead against rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

There were plenty more contributions in Europe’s “Big Four” leagues from African players. Watch all the goals and assists from players on African national teams below:
