Asamoah Gyan insists he regrets penalty miss at the 2010 FIFA World Cup

Published on: 22 November 2018

Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan has stated that the penalty miss during Ghana's 2010 World Cup quarter final game with Uruguay still hunts him.

Barcelona striker Luis Suarez's handball denied Dominic Adiyiah a late minute extra time goal for Ghana and Asamoah Gyan wasted the resultant penalty which was the last kick of the game and Ghana subsequently lost the penalty shootout.

According to Asamoah Gyan, if there is anything he would wish to change in his illustrious footballing career, it would be the spot kick he missed against Uruguay.

“If there is anything I would love to change in my career, it would be my penalty miss against Uruguay. I wish that day could come again for me to retake the penalty differently. I am still haunted by that penalty miss but I have to move on," Gyan said on Adom TV.

The Ghana's record scorer is celebrating his 33rd birthday today and is still yet to return to his team after the international break after warming the bench for the Black Stars in their 2-0 win over the Walias of Ethiopia in Addis Ababa.
