Can Asamoah Gyan translate his fine scoring form to the 2013 AFCON?

Posted On Tuesday, 4th December 2012

Asamoah Gyan has been on fire for Al Ain

Asamoah Gyan will lead Ghana into the 2013 AFCON as captain with his fine scoring form for Al Ain in the UAE Pro-League but can he translate his form to help Ghana’s campaign?

The 26-year-old has bagged 18 goals in ten games for Al Ain including a hat-trick and six different braces.

Ghana is one of the hot favourites to lift the prestigious trophy and the former Sunderland striker’s contribution will be very crucial for the campaign.

Though Gyan is raking in goals for Ain, there are questions surrounding the standard of the UAE Pro-League.

Gyan has five Nations Cup goals to his name since making his AFCON bow in the 2008 edition hosted on home soil, two of which are penalties.

When Gyan hit a rich vein of form in the Angola 2010 tournament where he bagged three goals, he was on fire for Stade Rennes in the French Ligue 1.

But the former Udinese striker has announced he is no more taking penalties kick due to string of crucial penalties.

Regarding Ghana’s lack of experience in  attack, Gyan must prove his mettle to steamroll Ghana’s title hopes.

Do you think Gyan can translate his scoring form for club to country in January?

    I wish he can but this is Africa football not soccer made in uae!! He is such a great striker but he needs to be more hungrier and purposeful infront of goal!! This dude was born to make history but sometimes he loses focus and how i wish he realised the stuff he is made of!!! Viva the revolutioncioooooooooo!!!!

  2. GH FUO, THINK BIG!!! says:

    NO. HE SHOULD LIFT SOME METAL AS AN ATHLETE. HIM AND BOAKYE YIADOM. THEY CAN BE ASSURED A CHANCE AT AFCON 2013.

    Why not?…Gyan have proven that he can score on countless occations & shoulder the responsibilities of lifting the team‘s spirit to the next level.He did that in 2010 AFCON & the WC when we least expected.As captain of the team,he‘ll be the cynosure of all eyes and I have no doubt, whatsoever, that he will deliver come January.

  8. kuukuphilly says:

    thats the question.we all knows that the uae league is mediocre,lets face it he was not doing this good in sunderland where the game is more intense so he owes it up to himself to prove his doubters wrong by banging in the goals in south africa!

  9. Maxwell Johnson says:

    I doubt if he can cuz his form has really deteriorated ever since he moved to the desert. The last goal he scored for GH was against Mali at the last AFCON in Gabon, he’s been a pale shadow of himself when playing for GH we all saw that during the AFCON qualifies against Malawi.

  10. T.K says:

    HE WILL SCORE BUT NOT AS IN UAE. DEFENDERS IN AFCON ARE DIFFERENT FROM DAT OF UAE
