The 28-year-old has now extending his season’s tally to 28 goals – two more than his closest contender for the top scorer award in the Arabian Gulf League.
Gyan has simply been on fire for Al Ain this season – scoring a staggering 36 goals in all competitions this term.
The win sees the dethroned UAE champions climb to fourth in the league, just a point adrift third placed Al Shabab.
