Ex-Ghana striker Augustine Ahinful has lauded Asamoah Gyan for rescinding his retirement decision from the Ghana national team.
The UAE-based striker confirmed his return to international football in a letter sent to the Ghana Football Association on Wednesday.
Gyan took an indefinite break from the Black Stars after the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations in February.
The Al Ain ace will be available for Ghana’s next assignment against Malawi in a 2013 Nations Cup final qualifier.
Ahinful, a former Trabzonspor striker, believes Kwesi Appiah’s side will be boost by Gyan’s return.
”I think Gyan’s return is great to all Ghanaians because his absence for some time in the team was felt,” Ahinful told Joy Sports.
”We need him because he is our top striker and his experience will help the Black Stars in their subsequent matches.”
