Video: Gyan scores two goals in full Premier League debut

Posted On Saturday, 6th November 2010

Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan scored both goals for Sunderland to beat Stoke 2-0 in his full English Premier League debut on Saturday.

Gyan scored in his first game for Sunderland when he came on as a substitute in September

Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan scored both goals for Sunderland to beat Stoke 2-0 in his first English Premier League start on Saturday.

The two goals from the Ghanaian superstar restored Sunderland’s pride after they were thrashed 5-1 last week by their arch rivals Newcastle.

Gyan was so influential in the game that he was brought down in the box but Steed Malbranque failed to convert in resulting penalty.

Gyan opened the scoring after ten-minutes sweeping the ball home from close-range. Then on the half-hour Steed Malbranque saw his penalty saved by Asmir Begovic.

Watch video of Gyan’s second goal below:

With 20-minutes left Stoke thought they had levelled when Jones met Matthew Etherington’s corner, but Lee Cattermole blocked on the line.

The game was put to bed with minutes to go when Gyan finished off a classic counter attack.

Gyan’s scoring feat has proved coach Steve Bruce wrong for keeping the record signing on the bench since arriving from Rennes in August.

His heroics came on his first Premier League start as he has mainly been used as a substitute since moving from the French top flight.

Gyan made sure Sunderland bounced back to form following their mauling at the hands of local rivals Newcastle last week.

    I saw the game. He took his chances very well against a very physical stoke city. Guy man just needed this to prove he belongs in the limelight.

  2. Kay says:

    Great game they both had. Mensah and Gyan I mean. They were excellent

  3. COCONUTHEAD says:

    It was vintage Gyan. His performance was incredible. He showed Sunderland fans what they have been missing with him sitting on the bench. Now I believe the script will be different from this moment forward. Well done baby jet!!!!

  4. kwame denkyi says:

    The guy is forceful!!! He needs to change his dance though. It’s getting a little too old.

  5. tonado2g7 says:

    It was a nice game Gyan did well…John was good ..his absence puted alot of pressure on their defence…cant wait to see them again

  6. phillbanger says:

    WERE IS THIS FOOL OPELE I WONDER WHAT HE IS GOING TO SAY NOW,

  7. david says:

    Dear friend,
    i will like to say this without fear of contradition Gyan will win this year Africa player of the year.merci asamoah tu est grand attaquan dieu vous bernise.

  8. tray says:

    Gyan was excellent in the match; i totally believed that the coach will find a starting position for this guy. Ghana will certainly missed Gyan a lot in their next nations cup qualifiers; Good luck Gyan!!!

  9. A concerned citizem says:

    Well done Asamoah Gyan..With two brilliant goals, Asamoah Gyan has therefore positioned himself for the best Africa player award by C.A.F………….[Statistics]..Club level..top scorer for his former club and now scoring for Sunderland..National level..Top scorer for Ghana in Angola which helped the Black Stars to reach the semi-finals…World Cup..top scorer for Ghana which catapulted the Black Stars to reach the quarter finals and for that matter reddeming the image of Africa from total disaster. Unlike Didier Drogba and Samuel Eto who only excelled in their foreign clubs but failed to bring their club form to African cup of Nations and African World cup at their own bachyard.

  10. kofi says:

    i think he is inline to be the next best striker in Africa……….. was a really good show from him!

  11. Daniel says:

    am short of words, if you could remember Gyan donated Money for a surging of a little Boy and God keep blessing him with Goals and people out there doesn’t understand but expect the people who the news that Day. i am sooooooooooooooooooooo proud of you Baby Jet. You really inspire me. THE JUST SHALL LIVE BY FAITH. THANKS FOR YOUR DONATION.

  12. Bemol says:

    Prove dem wrong gyan all the best

  13. john t says:

    Asamoah Gyan is the new best striker in the world and I think Danny Welbeck is an excellent supporting striker for Gyan.
    Ghana should immediately get Danny Welbeck to play for Ghana so that we can achieve more laurels for our great nation Ghana.

  14. Exit says:

    Phillbanger u are a big fool,never say a word to instuit my mantor again and think b4 u write mr opele u are the best.

  15. CHARLES A. NUNOO says:

    Any discredit toward or doubts about Asamoah Gyan’s abilities should rather be directed toward Bruce for incompetently bringing on Gyan when it’s close to the end of a game. Always.
    We all knew it was long overdue… How could you bench your most prized asset, bring him on when it’s already too late in a game, only to put unnecessary pressure (due to high expectation) on the player and the team as a whole?

    Allow Gyan to start from the beginning, at least, to justify his worth. He scored twice.

  16. YES EPL WILL BETTER FROM GHANA TALENTED PLAYERS ASAMOAH GYAN WELL AND PROVE TO THE EPL THAT THEY SHOULD COME FOR MORE..

  17. EK says:

    Opeele was right, the only way Gyan could keep scoring like this for his team and solidify a starting role is by giving him some time off in Ghana’s friendly against Saudi Arabia. Gyan needs more practice with his new team mates and he deserves a break from such a useless friendly.

  18. Nii Kwatei says:

    Asamoah Gyan!! He’s becoming less and less wasting. If from now he’s given a starting position in the team, I know he’ll develop into a topclass beast!
    Beware for Ghana in 2012!

  19. maxob4 says:

    A great game by Gyan, but u guys are forgetting about Welbecks workrate, the guy is marvelous. Imagine him with Gyan upfront for the BlackStars???

  20. Rasky78 says:

    Gyan and Welbech classic,i think Bruce should pair them in the next match again and see they understand each other than Bent.
    Cant wait to see Welbech play for Ghana.Well done guys keep.

  21. Kenneth Owusu Sabato says:

    phillbanger, u can’t insult Opeele like that. What he said was the right decision that should have been taken by whoever did the selection. Be football minded a bit, phillbanger. I keep on saying that for 2010,Asamoah Gyan has no challenger for the Africa’s best Title. NO SIZE. Go for it BABY JET. AFRIQUE NUMERO UNO!!

  22. ehiamasika says:

    This baby jet must be allowed to proof his worth, and I think the coach is atleast realizing his stupidity for keeping Gyan on bench

  23. maxwell maccarthy says:

    I’m proud of this lad very much with his counter attack kudos! but bruce must fix my lad in full 90mins to know how superior he is to the team so, what is the essence of benching gyan? bruce u’ve admitted to change your mind is good u’ll get superb result through gyan even today prove.

  24. Ghanaman2 says:

    Steve Bruce at least has untill today, learnt what he has been missing for a long time. He will be having nightmares till the next match with the question ” HOW BEST CAN I PAIR GYAN WITH BENT”.
    For Baby jet, there is no stopping now !

  25. Harry says:

    Opeele was right,leave him alone.
    I wish Danny plays for Ghana,he is fantastic.
    All the best Gyan.

  26. nero says:

    more power to ur elbows baby jet Gyan!!!

  27. Matt says:

    THIS IS GHANA FOR YOU,YOU SEE HOW THEY PRAISE HIM NOW BUT LET HIM MAKE A MISTAKE AND HIS NECK WILL BE ON THE ROB…

  28. Nuraini says:

    Bruce remind me of Arsne winger .. when henry was first brought to arsnals he always keep him on the bench so that he can learn how the EPL is all about same goes to Gyan … the Coach knew what he was doing and gyan is going to be the CATS top scorer too .. all the best BABY JET

  29. jesse says:

    It is surprising how now everyone including all those who in this recent past have been castigating and insulting Gyan are all singing his praise.The point is Gyan takes all those criticism in good faith and tries to silence people on the pitch and he has done it today.This is a spit on the face for all you haters of Gyan on this site!I will not be surprised if Gyan ends up as one of the top strikers in England this season and that is if he gets the start in games.This has sent a strong signal to Steve Bruce.Well done baby jet and we genuine observers of the game of football will always project your name.!Go Gyan go Baby Jet!

  30. Maxwell Johnson says:

    Masa you gotta forget about that music shit and concentrate on your football career,that’s my major problem with you boy.

  31. RICH says:

    Ha!ha! ha!!!! Now we only need good coach to put the team together. Below is my best 11 if Danny decide to play for Ghana.
    ==================KINGSTON=========================

    INKOOM=====VORSAH=========MENSAH===NANA KWASI ASARE

    ======PRINCE BOATENG=====ESSIEN=====MUNTARI========

    ========QUINCY======GYAN=========DANNY=============

  32. Maxwell Johnson says:

    Sunderland currently lie on the 7th position in the EPL which is one their best position in more than a decade,@Rich i agree with your selection to some point couldn’t agree with you to the fact that you included Olele in the starting line up,all the players you selected are all active and playing regularly for their clubs and not Olele who has been warming the bench at club level close to 2 years now.Sammy Adjei should be in that position he has been a regular feature for Hearts Of Oak through out the off season up till date and he is currently the best GK in GH right now.

  33. [...] Link: Asamoah Gyan scores two goals in full Premier League debut … [...]

  34. RICH says:

    @ MAXWELL JOHNSON
    Bro, I have a soft spot for Sammy but its just that I having see him in action for long time. likewise the othe keeper the GFA is working on. That is why I put Kingston in there. I sincerely believe we have to find a good keeper before 2012 cup of nations

  35. phillbanger says:

    KENETH OWUSU—EXIT—I REALLY THINK THE TWO OF YOU ARE LOVERS U INSULTING ME COUSE OF THIS FOOL CALLED OPELE.GYAN HAS MADE A BIG IMPACT FOR THE BLACKSTARS.YOU GUYS ARE TAKING A FRIENDLY MATCH AS A JOKE BUT U GUYS ARE FORGETTING THAT FRIENDLY GAMES ARE ALSO IMPORTANT TO YOUR NEXT OPONENT .IF YOU WIN YOUR MATCH U PUT BIG FEAR IN YOUR NEXT OPONENT.THE COACH IS ALSO TRYIN TO PROVE TO THE GFA THAT HE ALSO HAS WHAT IT TAKES TO WIN.WE CAN ALSO TAKE NEW STRIKERS AND GIVE THEM ATLEAST 20 MINS AND SEE WAT THEY CAN DO.GYAN IS AN EXPERIANCE STRIKER U CANNOT LEAV THAT KIND OF PLAYER OUT,SO KENETH AND EXIT U CAN ALL KISS MY BLACK MUSCLE AZZ. INCLUDING OPELE,

  36. Beachbody says:

  37. Harry says:

    Nana Kwasi Asare is a fantastic Midfielder and not a defender.He is 10000000 times better than the GFA lover,Agyamang-Badu.Ghana,we prefer bench warmers to active players.

  38. VILLA says:

    GHANASOCCERNET SHOW THE TWO GOALS

  39. Nii Kwatei says:

    @beach body
    I like your team, but where is Muntari?

  40. papacy says:

  41. adjei says:
