Asamoah Gyan says Burkina will be tough

Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan is wary of the disciplined Burkina Faso defence ahead of their semi-final clash of the Africa Cup of Nations on Wednesday.

Gyan, who has been the Black Stars sole striker in this tournament so far, has rated the Stallions defence as one of the best in the tournament.

The Burkinabes have conceded just one goal in the four matches they have played in the tournament so far.

The Ghana captain says the Stallions will be tough in defence as they have been so far in the competition.

“They are composed and do not give space. I think the Burkina Faso defense is one of the in the competition,” said Gyan.

Ghana fought hard to beat Cape Verde 2-0 in the quarter finals but Gyan says they will have to up their game to beat the Stallions.

“We did not play well against Cape Verde and I think we won because of our experience. We have to improve from that,” he said.

The Ghanaians are seeking relive their 1982 moment when they lifted their African title.

    Ghana won her last afcon in 1982,libya, which was the 13th Africa cup of nations and ethiopia was there and after 31 yrs absence,Ethiopia finally made it in 2013(remember the no 13 there) and Ghana won it fourth Africa cup of nations in 13th Africa cup of nations!!! Amazing!!! After 31 yrs,Ghana has not won it again and Ethiopia did not qualified to all the Africa cup of nations and strangely qualified in 2013 after participated in the 13th edition of afcon and the start of new afcon in odd yrs!!! Food for thought!!!! Maybe the football gods favour Ghana now!!! This is the first time after 31 yrs that Ghana has produced a player with three goals just like George alhassan who was the top scorer during 1982 edition with three goals!!! Upon all these yrs,it never happened!!!! … in 1982,Ghana has a ghanaian coach,ck Gyamfi whose last name … gyamfi add up to six whiles appiah also add up to six!!!! Viva the revolutionciooooooo!!!

    Ghana should watch out in today’s match. Because we have been losing our entire 5th match starting from 2008 when playing a tournament. In AFCON 2008 hosted by Ghana, we were trash by one (1) goal to nil by Cameron. (07/02/2008) That was our 5th match. In AFCON 2010 hosted by Angola we lost to Egypt by one (1) goal to nil in the final after Togo were pulled out in the group stage. (31/01/2010) That was our 5th match. In South Africa 2010 World Cup we lost to Uruguay on penalties. That was our 5th match. (02/07/2010). Just last year in Equatorial Guinea/ Gabon we lost to Zambia by one (1) goal to nil. That was our 5th match of the tournament. (08/02/12). We have lost four (4) continues tournament and today is the 5th time in our 5th game. As we are looking forward for our 5th Nation Cup trophy. Are we going to stop this history or history is going to repeat itself..???? Hmm we are behind you BLACK STARS. GO BLACK STARS GO….
