The player scored one of his team’s two goals that sent out Cote d’Ivoire in the tournament’s semi-final match on Sunday.
Emenike now joins Wakaso Mubarak of Ghana and Alain Traore of Burkina Faso, each with three goals, as joint stop scorers.
All three remain in the tournament, meaning they could score more goals.
Seven players have so far scored two goals each: Seydou Keita of Mali, Jonathan Pitroipa of Burkina Faso and Victor Moses of Nigeria.
Others are: Dieumerci Mbokani of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Siyanbonga Sangweni of South Africa, as well as Yaya Toure and Gervinho, both of Cote d’Ivoire.
