Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has become the top-scoring African in Bundesliga history after scoring in Borussia Dortmund's 2-1 home defeat to Werder Bremen on Saturday.

Aubameyang levelled the scores by bundling home from close range but the shock loss for Borussia Dortmund leaves it without a win in eight league games and 13 points behind league leader Bayern Munich.

The Gabon striker had equalled the record in Dortmund's Ruhr derby collapse from 4-0 up against Schalke to draw 4-4, with his Bremen goal taking him to 97 Bundesliga strikes.

Aubameyang's new record was previously held by Tony Yeboah, the Ghana striker who played for Eintracht Frankfurt and Hamburg either side of a spell in the Premier League with Leeds United.
