Al Ain to miss Asamoah Gyan for Etisalat Cup matches

Posted On Tuesday, 2nd October 2012

Asamoah Gyan in action for Al Ain in the United Arab Emirates

Al Ain will have to make do without star striker Asamoah Gyan for two important games later this month after he was called up by Ghana for their 2013 Africa Cup of Nations clash against Malawi.

Gyan, who ended his self-imposed international exile earlier this year, has been named in Kwesi Appiah’s 21-man squad for their return fixture against Malawi in Lilongwe on October 13.

Appiah is taking no chances as the Black Stars seek to qualify for next year’s finals in South Africa after winning the first leg 2-0 at home last month.

The inclusion of Gyan means the 26-year-old, top scorer in the Pro League last season with 22 goals, will see him miss Al Ain’s Etisalat Cup clashes against Dubai Club (October 9) and Al Wahda (October 14).

Gyan has already netted four goals ain just two league games this season after sealing a permanent move to the Tahnoun bin Mohammed Stadium from Premier League side Sunderland this summer.

His absence is likely to pave the way for Al Ain new boy Alex Brosque to take his place after the Australian striker completed his move to the club on a two-year deal last week.

Both men are expected to line-up together for the first time this weekend when Al Ain will look to build on their 4-1 thrashing of Ajman last time out against newly-promoted Al Dhafra.

    These are some of the sacrifices the fans easily forget.
    Thank you Gyan for your commitment, your club will not lose the match. Just teach Malawi a lesson or two, because we have a strong midfield who are going to supply you with good goal scoring chances. Please score them all.
