Asamoah Gyan sure of Sierra Leone scalp
Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan has promised Ghanaians they will give their best to beat Sierra Leone in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi on Thursday.
According to Gyan, beating the Leone Stars is the only way to make Ghanaians happy after the surprise defeat at the hands of Kenya in Nairobi last month.
The Kayserispor striker wasn’t invited for the match with his absence hugely felt as the Black Stars failed to convert any of their 13 goal scoring opportunities.
“We just got back this afternoon so we just needed to do some shakeup exercises but we didn't do much but most of the guys are playing outside so it won't affect our game,'' he told the media after Monday's training in Kumasi.
''We make sure we come back quickly because we lost our last game and everybody was disappointed and we are here to make the fans happy.”
“So three maximum points is very important for us and that's all we working on.”
“Anytime we come here, the support they give us makes us happy and motivate us to give off our best. So am pleading to all Ghanaians that, they should come in their numbers to the Baba Yara Stadium on Thursday to support us and I am assuring them that we will win the match to make everybody happy.”
The 32-year-old hasn’t had the best of the starts to the season at his club, having featured in only three games in Turkish Super Lig with no goal.
However, he is expected to start against Sierra Leone and increase his record 51 international goals.
