Despite being a 34-year-old right-back for Intercity in Spain’s third tier, Nsue demonstrated remarkable attacking prowess by netting all five goals across two remarkable performances.

Nsue notably achieved a stunning hat-trick against Guinea-Bissau during Equatorial Guinea’s second group stage match.

He then followed this up with a brace in Nzalang Nacional’s memorable 4-0 triumph over Côte d’Ivoire in their final group stage encounter.

Although he missed a penalty in the round of 16 match against Guinea, where Mohamed Bayo scored the winning goal for Guinea, Nsue’s remarkable goal-scoring contributions earned him the prestigious Golden Boot award.
