UEFA Champions League

Top 10 Highest Scoring Africans In UCL History, Benni Misses Out

The UEFA Champions League final was supposed to take place today, so we decided to take a look at the highest scoring African players in the competition's history.

Click through the gallery to see Africa's highest scorers in history.

Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah have starred for Liverpool over the past two seasons in Europe's premier club competition, which also resulted in the Reds winning last season's final.

However, neither of them occupy the top spot as Former Ivory Coast star Didier Drogba tops the ranking with 44 goals during his stints with Olympique Marseille, Chelsea and Galatasaray.

Three-time UEFA Champions League winner Samuel Eto'o comes in at second place on the list with 33 goals for the likes of FC Barcelona, Inter Milan and Chelsea.

Salah does feature in the top three after netting 30 goals across stints with FC Basel, AS Roma and Liverpool since making his Champions League debut in 2013.
