Ghana going into Mali game to win - Asamoah Gyan

Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan

By Ameenu Shardow

Captain Asamoah Gyan says the Black Stars will be going into the Mali game with the absolute intention of winning.

Ghana threw away a two goal lead to draw 2-2 with DR Congo in the opening Group B fixture of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations on Sunday.

The four-time African champions are now red-faced to secure their first win of the campaign to resurrect their title ambitions in South Africa.

And Gyan who is tasked with leading the Ghana team to ending a 31-year wait for an African title says the mentality going into the game against Mali on Thursday is to win.

“We have to go with the mentality of winning because the more you win, the more you qualify,” he told GHANAsoccernet.com.

“I would urge Ghanaians to keep calm, keep on praying for the Black Stars.

‘They should have confidence in the team because this is just the first game, we have got two more games to go.

“It will depend on the players, now everything depends on the team and we will make sure we demonstrate it and make sure we qualify from the group.”

Ghana with one point are now third in Group B behind Mali and DR Congo ahead of the second round of group games.

  2. Words says:

    Much will depend on u Gyan cos u re a striker n u ve to score goals.
    If u kp wasting chances like u did against Congo how re we gonna win???

  3. Bemol says:

    Shut up gyan. U are finished.

  4. @Kwame says:

    I dont think u wld villify him this way if he was the bread winner of your family. think big.

  5. @Kwame says:

    @GH FUO, guy in fact you are quite interesting hahahaha, ghana sent 23 players to SA, and u claim u are giving us ur starting 11 and end up giving us starting 28 hahahaha with 3 goal keepers in the post. I mean you have idea, from the realistic point of view, you are ideologicallly bankrupt. U are my favourite bro.

  6. @Kwame says:

    @Bemol, Unfortunately no one knows BEMOL.

  7. Bra Kwame says:

    Oh I see, So u went to the Congo match to draw eh?…Its not about what you say bro. Gyan….As long as you keep wasting chances like that “me and you” vrs Congo, how can we ever win? Answer me, bro Gyan.

  8. Ayuba Moh'd says:

    Gyan has to start from the bench in order to give chance to either Boakye or Clottey to show their potentialities.

  9. john aidoo says:

    i always say that the captain title should have been given to dede and not gyan.he and his guys can’t run,can’t attack,can’t do any shit and now talking about going to beat a team which ran throughout the 95 minutes to beat a strong opponent too (niger)?oh yes gyan,is easy to say than done.we don’t have creative person like ayew .how?

    • Redd says:

      I agree with you.He bought the captaincy with his arabian dollars so lets all keep quiet and watch him disgrace himself.Always talking instead of playing soccer on the pitch.Ghana is coming after the first round.IVC will win this tournament.

  10. Aminu Sowah says:

    gyan is the best striker we ever had in Ghana.
    so lets keep on praying for him as well as the team and ISHA ALLAH they will deliver.

  11. nana(rsa) says:

    Mr Gyan, l know you have what it takes to score goals. Please, believe in your potentials, put the ball down dribble when you have to, be clinical when presented and opportunity. Let the defence feel your presence around them and above all be mentally tough. I know you can do it. I really missed Dede in the match against Dr Congo. But l still believe that you have what it takes to achieve something without him. United we stand: Divided we fall.

  12. selfmade says:

    I don’t know why this dude can’t shut up… i hardly see drogba,mputu and even the likes of eto,appiahs etc talking so much before a match!! Ghanaian players has being flopping not because they are not good but because they put themselves thru unnecessary pressure by talking so much!! Damn,these niggas don’t learned!! Those who know don’t talk and those who talk don’t know shit!!!! He has Ghanas best chance to win the match for us and he flopped so why so much talk again!!! Vuva the revolutionciooooo!!

  13. @Kwame says:

    You demoralize the players with your razor tongues and you still expect the guys to win. Hmm pray you dnt become a leader someday.
