Asamoah Gyan wants to win AFCON before he retires

Published on: 23 November 2018

Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan has noted his desire to win the Africa Cup of Nations for the country before he retires.

Gyan's amazing career has been amazing with personal glory but he insists it will be complete if he wins the elusive Africa Cup of Nations.

"I've achieved a lot personally but I want to win the AFCON trophy before I call it a day," Gyan told Kumasi-based FOX FM.

"I'll be elated to win the AFCON Cup as the Black stars captain before I retire. We've to be united as a country to defend the flag of Ghana."

Asamoah Gyan has played two finals and lost all- in 2010 Ghana lost to Egypt and also lost in 2015 to Ivory Coast.

The Kayserispor striker, who turned 33 on Thursday, has achieved a lot for himself including being Africa's leading scorer in FIFA World Cup history.

He is also Ghana's all-time top-scorer with 51 goals.
