Vincent Aboubakar poised to surpass Roger Milla’s record against Angola

Vincent Aboubakar

Cameroon’s Vincent Aboubakar stands on the brink of history as he prepares to surpass the legendary Roger Milla’s goal record for the national team. Tied with Milla at 43 goals, Aboubakar needs just one more goal to secure his place as the second-highest scorer in the history of the Indomitable Lions, trailing only Samuel Eto’o, who holds the top spot with 56 goals.

Last Saturday, Aboubakar’s impressive performance saw him score twice in a 4-1 victory over Cape Verde, bringing him level with Milla. This Tuesday, as Cameroon faces Angola in Luanda for the 2026 World Cup qualifiers, the captain has the chance to make history. A single goal would not only elevate him above Milla but also solidify his status as one of the greatest forwards in African football history.

Pursuing Eto’o’s Record: A Feasible Feat?

Cameroonian fans are now contemplating whether Aboubakar can eventually challenge Samuel Eto’o’s formidable record of 56 goals.

The path to this milestone is fraught with challenges, primarily hinging on Aboubakar’s fitness and form.

The 32-year-old has struggled with injuries, which raises concerns about his availability for upcoming fixtures.

The schedule ahead is demanding. The Indomitable Lions will face a series of crucial matches, including six fixtures between September and November for the AFCON2025 qualifiers, followed by the 2026 World Cup qualifiers.

Each game presents an opportunity for the Besiktas forward to inch closer to Eto’o’s record.

Aboubakar’s ability to stay fit and maintain his scoring form will be critical in his pursuit of this goal.

A Legacy of Memorable Goals

Aboubakar’s career has been marked by spectacular goals that have cemented his reputation as one of Africa’s finest strikers.

His contributions have been vital in maintaining Cameroon’s competitive edge, even during challenging periods.

From the African Cup of Nations to the World Cup, Aboubakar’s goals have often been synonymous with Cameroon’s success.

As he prepares for his 104th appearance for the national team, the match against Angola is more than just another qualifi

er. It’s a moment for Aboubakar to etch his name deeper into the annals of Cameroonian football history.

His journey from a talented youngster to a national icon has been defined by determination and excellence, and surpassing Milla’s record would be a testament to his enduring impact on the sport.

The anticipation surrounding this potential milestone adds an extra layer of excitement to Tuesday’s game.

Fans and teammates alike will be watching closely, hoping to witness a historic moment for Vincent Aboubakar and the Indomitable Lions.
