Gyan: I’m frustrated not scoring my 50th goal

Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan has admitted his frustration over failed attempts to score two goals against Comoros in the World Cup qualifiers on Tuesday to hit the 50-goal mark for the Black Stars.

Two goals from Wakaso Mubarak and Jordan Ayew gave Ghana a 2-0 victory but midway through the first half, Andre Ayew’s cross from the left was headed narrowly wide by Gyan.

The 29-year-old had another goal opportunity in second half, but after beating his marker Ben Boina, the Shanghai SIPG front man bungled his close-range finish.

“It’s frustrating that I couldn’t score,” Gyan told Goal. “I got one clear opportunity but it went wide.”

“However, I am not worried as we have a lot of games left to play. As a striker, I am not worried at all.

“I believe in my qualities and I know what I am capable of doing. There are more games coming up and I know I’m going to make it,” he said.

Gyan scored on his debut in 2003 and has gone on to hit 48 goals after 95 appearances.

He will become only the fifth African player to hit the 50-goal mark after Hossam Hassan, Godfrey Chitalu, Didier Drogba and Samuel Eto’o.
