Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan tips Zambia as title contenders for 2015 AFCON

Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan has tipped Zambia to reach the finals of the Morocco 2015 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

Asamoah Gyan arrived in Zambia on Wednesday afternoon

Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan has tipped Zambia to reach the finals of the Morocco 2015 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

The Black Stars skipper paid a glowing tribute to the Chipolopolo despite the huge recent rivalry between the two countries in recent matches.

Gyan, who plays for Al Ain in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), made this prediction on Wendesday afternoon when making a brief stop in the Zambian capital Lusaka.

The Black Stars captain made a stopover at the Kenneth Kaunda International Airport (KKIA) on his way to Malawi for the United Nations AIDS (UN-AIDS) Stop the Goal Campaign, that Zambia was one of the strongest sides on the continent.

The Ghanaian captain said Zambia worked hard to win the 2012 AFCON title and was confident that the Chipolopolo will be one to watch out at next year’s edition.

“No one gave them (Zambia) a chance in 2012 but the team really worked hard to win the title and I am sure Zambia will be one of the strongest contenders for the title next year,” Gyan said.

Zambia beat Ghana 1-0 in a match that saw Gyan miss a penalty in the semi finals at the 2012 AFCON finals and repeated the result during the Brazil 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifiers in Ndola but lost 2-1 in Kumasi.

Gyan said he was looking forward to playing the Chipolopolo in Morocco.

Meanwhile, UNAIDS institution capacity adviser Kenneth Mwansa said the Stop the Goal Campaign was aimed at ensuring youths were kept away from vices that could put them at risk of acquiring HIV.

Mwansa said it was why his organisation was using celebrities like Gyan, who are role models to the youths.

He said Gyan had taken a long journey to as far as Brazil and many other parts of the world before he hands over the ball to Malawi where it will be signed by the President Peter Mutharika.

    Asamoa Gyan is 100% correct. He knows Zambia better as a player and appreciate our strength and how we hammerd ghana twice within a space of four months in 2012.
    This Banger animal is not a player but just a thief on Accra streets with no knowledge of football.

  10. jujughana says:

    mumbi yep Ghana Don,t know how to play football only put their hope in juju!

  11. Samedge says:

    @Banger just relax okay? Asamoah Gyan played mind game. Who does know zambians play marble but not football. Cape Verde will nutmeg em.

  12. Samedge says:

    @Banger just relax okay? Who doesn’t know zambians play marble but not football. Asamoah Gyan said it bcos he was scared of the village dwarf by him in the picture above.

  13. Mumbi says:

    Asamoah knows how Zambia dominated them in 2012 and won afcon which non of the current Ghana squad have never won. Asamoa Gyan has never won afcon but knows that Zambia has players who have won it.
    So he knows that Zambia has a squad capable of wining afcon 2015. CK11, Sunzu, Kalaba, chisamba, Mweene, Sinkala, etc have done Zambia proud by smashing Asamoa’s ghana to win the trophy & put ghana where they belong (trophyless).
