Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan arrived on Saturday morning

Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan is the first player to arrive for next week’s crucial World Cup qualifier against Zambia after touching down in the country on Saturday morning.

The 27-year-old arrived on a private jet under 24 hours of his cup disappointment in Al Ain’s penalty shootout defeat to Al Ahli in the UAE Super Cup match.

Gyan thus becomes the first player to arrive for Black Stars duty contrary to reports South African-based trio Fatau Dauda, Rashid Sumaila and Mohammed Awal who are in action this weekend were to arrive on Thursday.

The former Sunderland hitman proved his fitness after suffering a knock in training by playing the entire duration of the Boss’ defeat to Ahli on Friday night.

He even stepped up to convert the side’s first kick in the penalty shootouts but eventually ended up on the losing side.

Gyan’s early arrival shows his immense commitment to the national team ahead of the crucial qualifier against Zambia this coming Friday in Kumasi.

He is determined to help banish recent heartaches suffered at the hands of the Chipolopolo – with one forcing him to take an almost six-month break from the Black Stars.

The Ghana captain has been in inspired form in recent times for both club and country.

He has scored in his past four goals in Ghana’s last three wins in the qualifiers to ensure the Black Stars remain on track to making a third successive World Cup appearance next year in Brazil.

Ghana only need to avoid defeat against Zambia in the last Group D match on Friday to secure progress but the Black Stars are determined to atone for recent back-to-back defeats suffered at the hands of the 2012 African champions.

    Hahahaha! You are right in arriving early Gyan because you now have to prepare your permanent retirement. The Copper Bullets will be flying in soon and there’s no way you can dodge them. Ghana will be shot by the snipers from the south and you will not even know where the copper shots came from. You lose to a country that has been undergoing a civil war, Libya, and you want to defeat the African oasis of peace. Pwahahahaha. Ghana, please stick to playing women’s football and youth football because that’s where you seem to excel. Kikikikikiki!

  7. kuukuphilly says:

    @papa and r the worms in ur stomachs doing as this game approaches,I know they’re scrambling for food by now.children of ashawo women how many times I have to tell u guys that there’s no way on earth that Zambia will win this game.this line up can beat any team on any day,get it through ur thick and useless heads..

  8. Papa says:

    Ghana, perpetual age-cheats. Go and participate in the under 20 world cup where you normally send your over 30 players and win. Michael Essien claims to be 31 years, but these days he runs and plays like his true age – 39ys. He is Ryan Giggs’ agemate and will soon turn 40 yrs. You don’t win anything at senior level, because by then you are over 40yrs. hehehehehe!

  9. Papa says:

    You think old man Essien can run with Rainford Kalaba? It will be like a race between Usain Bolt and Ghanaman’s and Kuukuphilly’s grandmothers. Hehehehehehehe!

  10. Papa says:

    I will be coming to Kumasi for two things: To support Chipolopolo and to take Jackie Appiah. Lol

  11. King says:

    Kuukuphillly your name is hard to spell foooooool a team that beat serbia and austria with penality! A team that cannot best burkina faso,turkey,cape verde,mali,liberia,DR congo. They can only beat an Ape

  12. King says:

    Hahaha who is Junkie APE-iah?

  13. All attention will be channelled to Kumasi on 6th september 2013. By this time in 6 days time, Asamoah Gyan, Essien, Boateng and a host of other gayna players will present their retirement letter to GFA, by this time in 6days time, the copper bullet will send about 24 million gaynaians into coma including Ghanaman and this idiotic kukuphily, by this time in 6days time, the Ghana national flag will be flown at half mast thereby setting up the three days national mourning to Ghana as a nation…. By this time in 6 days time, i see the nation ZAMBIA celebrating…………….. Just one goal from Mulenga will get us all smiling and dancing alingo… All these are NIGERIANS wish! Go Zambia, go, we love you guys.

  14. King says:

    Hahaha NONI ! How many goals are we Gonna give malawi 4 5….6?

  15. King my brother i told Keshi this evening that just 6goals will be ok for the flames of Malawi. If it should exceed 6goals i will fire him…. King do me a favour pls, Vincent Enyaema called me about 2hrs ago. He said he sensed boredom against the flames of Malawi. He said we should come with ludo game to calabar on saturday. Abeg you fit help me buy ludo game when coming to calabar on saturday? Abeg.

  16. King says:

    Hahahahaha ok but Keshi won’t be in that match

  17. kuukuphilly says:

    Truly I say unto u.papa,king and the rest of u hopeless dreamers. We don’t loose world cup qualifiers at home so prepare urself very well.dummies.

  18. We just have to teach the flames of Malawi the lesson of their life. Their Belgian coach should know that you don’t mess up with the Brazil of Africa(NIGERIA). We have to prove to africa that we are the best and it is going to take yrs before we can lose to an african side……

  19. Olonka says:

    @noni please u better find some okada job to do and stop wasting all ur energy and time on the various soccer sites for necessary arguements .Remember time is money.Just take a cue from ur country man King of Kings who is now an okada driver happily plying his trade between Abuja and Lagos and has stop commenting on all soccer sites and in two years u will overtake

  20. spellBOUND says:

  22. King says:

  24. King says:


  25. King yeah we lost Keshi cos of his racial comments against that Belgian cow… Malawi coach just wanted to use alot of his antics to distabilize our team. He forgot that Nigerians don’t die, we multiply…. Keshi’s presence on that day doesn’t really matter bro, what matters is the presence and calabar invasion by millions of Nigeria…. Our presence alone will even cause Malawi defenders to score own goalsssss. Hahahaha. Their father left ear.

  52. Collynzo says:

    @gaynaboy you’ve undergone the best education offered in Gayna, yet you can’t spell ”proud” and ”beginning”. Just check out your writing in general, so poor. It doesn’t speak well of an educated person.

  53. @king…. Good night bro. Gaynaians gat week lines… I’m outta here as well. We’ll sure invade this site come september 6th after the match between Gayna vs Zambia…… By then 24million gaynaians would have gone into oblivion.. Hahahahaha. A word is enough for the foolish cos they don’t understand plenty. I’m out.

    awwh, going to sleep so early noni???its not even 9 yet? i guess all the insults tired you out. anyway, like i said earlier, i will be looking for you and your insult laden friends after the final whistle on the 6th.

  55. ghanaboy says:

    colynzo..what is education?? even the queen herself make,i got 8As in my wassce..What did u get??No educated guy will expose his ignorance in public..Tell me,since when have you written a violence free sentence..No wander you people are seeking education in kenya.Chinese are known for their best IQ on technological analysis,but they are not good at writing english..Intelligent level of a man is not determined by his statement or choice of spelling.Man..Intelligence is beyond book.You roam all over the sites to congratulate those who invoke insults.Are you a muslim? or a boko haramist? your IQ level is too poor to assess me.

  56. Ghanaboy says:

    @spellBOUND my brother is chicken pox that my problem for now.let’s pray we lose narrowly to zambia like Ghana 1-2 zambia

  57. Collynzo says:

    @gaynaboy, you got 8As in your WASSCE? Was English Language one of them? Where is the proof? As for your other questions, I am not a Muslim, neither am I a Boko haram member, but I support any one who insults Gaynaians. You gays think you’ve a monopoly of insults, you haven’t seen anything yet. Boko Haram is being flushed into oblivion by our mighty military but you gays keep blabbing about them, nothing else for you to talk about.

  58. ghanaboy says:

    noni,come back to your you realize where you are? we are not in the boko haram land..your master collyzo have no one to kill here,if you have anyone one to exchange words with,do it first with the boko haramists,if probably you are not one..cos very soon,i repeat, very soon,you people will be refugees..your arrogance will lead you to the feet of somalia to beg for bread..long live boko already on my sweet bed..whatever you say is my back case..enjoying the peaceful atmosphere.i will love to live in jail than to live in boko haram land.long live boko haram.

  59. Collynzo says:

    @Gaynaboy boko haram has already been destroyed by our mighty military, so the only thing that will live long is your stupidity. Hahaha

  60. Ghanaboy says:

    @collynzo alright am a fool I admit I don’t know how boko haram works.I just want NONI to beg bread like me.collynzo please help me my father is poor.I wish am a nigerian.Ghana is a useless poor country we are feeding from dustbin here in accra KIng,collynzo and NONI please am on my knees begging please help.

  61. Collynzo says:

    @Gaynaboy the way you write doesn’t speak well of someone who got 8 As in WASSCE. Were your scripts marked by your mum? Did you answer the questions in your local language? Hahaha anything is possible.

  62. Collynzo says:

    OK we forgive you.

  67. dede says:

    Not only in USA but all over the world i wonder why this Nigeria people still has the mouth to raze an insult on Ghana and his wonderful citezens.look at how Nigerians are roaming all over the world cause porverty.look at how their suffering in any country they decided to recide cause of their bad habbit.police forces in Nigeria are all armed robbers so their people don’t want to travel back home for luck of good scurity.look at how they started selling their kidney in india for surviver.Nigerias only envy Ghana and his citezens so u guys should ignor their verbal insult and comment on the topic above.God bless our home-land Ghana and contiue to make our nation great and strong.we shall contnue to enjoy our peacefull journey.

  70. kwaku says:

    i am just left wondering why the so called giants of africa have neva made it to the quarter final of the world cup and why a nigarian has neva risen to head any famous global organization….u r giants in name only but midgets in results and in reality..jealousy go kill you…even ur comedians always use naija as example of a bad thing.

  71. taste says:

    I am so glad my mum did not teach me to use abusive language on people no matter how i disagree with them. God bless her.

  72. African Consciousness says:

    The Black Stars captain means business. He will play the best football of his career against Zambia on Friday and he will shatter the Ghanaian goal scoring record by scoring a hat trick against Zambia. Asamoah Gyan was able to break down the Sudanese defense something the Zambian forwards were unable to do in Ndola.

    Gyan is ready and Zambia better watch out!

  73. African Consciousness says:

    Assamoah Gyan was not fit against Zambia at AFCON, so the rubber bullets got away with a 1-0 win. With Gyan 100% fit we will see how the Zambian defense handles him and Majeed Waris on the forward line.
