Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan reached a milestone on Saturday as he equalled Africa’s goal record at the World Cup finals.
The 28-year-old equalled Cameroon’s Roger Milla’s 5 goal record at the finals following his 63rd minute strike from a Sulley Muntari well tailored cross in Ghana’s 2-2 draw with Germany.
Gyan went into this year’s finals with four goals from two previous World Cups and his strike on Saturday has helped him to amasss five goals at the finals.
Cameroon’s Roger Milla had been holding the record since the 1994 World Cup and no African striker has been able to rival his record. Milla scored five of his goals between the 1990 and 1994 World Cup.
But Gyan’s impressive scoring run since Ghana’s participation at the three previous World Cups has seen him equal the record.
Do you think with the class shown, Gyan has break Roger Milla’s record at the tournament??
