Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan returned from injury to play for his Shanghai SIPG team in their Chinese Super League game against Demba Ba’s Shanghai Shenhua.
The Ghanaian forward was stretched off in Shanghai SIPG’s Asian Champions League game against Melbourne Victory last month and missed their last two games against Suwon Bluewings and Henan Jianye.
There were fears Asamoah Gyan’s injury will rule him out of Ghana’s 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying game against Mozambique later this month but the former Al Ain striker made an injury return on Friday, playing in the entire duration of the game against Shanghai Shenhua.
Giovanni Andres Moreno scored the opening goal of the game for Demba Ba’s away team before Cia Huikang leveled for a 1-1 score line at half time.
Both teams failed to score a goal in the second half of the game with Shanghai SIPG and Shanghai Shenhua taking a point a piece from the Chinese Super League fixture.
