Winning 2019 AFCON would be dream come true - Gyan

Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan says he is hoping to add the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations title to his tally of accolades before retiring from international football.

The 33-year-old has featured in six Afcon finals since 2008, scoring in each but is yet to win the competition.

With his international career apparently drawing to a close, the Kayserispor star hopes to be at his best at Cameroon 2019, which looks like his final chance to win a major trophy with the Black Stars.

"I've achieved a lot personally but I want to do well and win the Afcon next year before I call it a day," Gyan told Fox FM.

"I'd be elated to win the title as the Black Stars captain before I retire. It's basically the only thing I've not been able to achieve so far in my career. It would be a dream come true for me to finally lift it.

"But before we can win it next year, I believe we have to be united as a country and defend the flag of Ghana because togetherness is key in every success story," he added.

Gyan is Ghana's all-time topscorer with 51 goals in 106 caps. However, a troublesome knee injury has kept him out of international duties since September 2017.
