Asamoah Gyan scores in SIPG away win

Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan was on the score sheet once again for Shanghai SIPG in their 2-1 win over rivals Shanghai Shenhua on Sunday.

The Black Stars captain scored¬† in the 65¬†minute to cancel out Tim Cahill’s opener for Shenhua, which was scored from a spot-kick in the 19th minute.

An own-goal from Mohamed Sissoko gave Gyan’s SIPG the away victory and consigns them to the top of the Chinese Premier League table on 52 points, one above second-placed Guangzhou Evergrande and six ahead of third-place Shadong Luneng.

Gyan, who scored against Shenhua last Friday but were eliminated on penalties in the Chinese FA Cup, has now scored four goals in the league since joining Sven-Goran Eriksson’s side this summer.
