Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan has hailed the fans for their unflinching support in the 6-1 World Cup playoff first leg win over Egypt on Tuesday.
The Black Stars had a capacity-filled Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi as they brightened their chances of making it to Brazil.
Gyan scored two of Ghana’s goals to increase his international tally to 39.
The Al Ain ace believes the fantastic support received from the fans played a vital in their superlative display.
“That is what I expected from the fans and we saw everything today,” Gyan said a post-match conference.
”This is what I want Ghanaians to be doing for us all the time. We shouldn’t wait for an important match like this before we support the team.
”All we want is the support for us to also deliver. Sometimes when we play and we feel there is no one behind us that is when things get difficult.
”So I would like to thank the fans for what they did for the team. It was incredible, the atmosphere was unbelievable.
”The stadium was already full when we got here and that is what we want. So i will urge the fans to continue like this.”
