Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan has taken his tally to four goals in two matches in the UAE top-flight after scoring twice on Friday.
Gyan’s early brace helped Al-Ain secure their first win of the new UAE League season with a 4-1 away triumph over Ajman in their second game of the season.
This means Gyan is one of the two leading scorers in the league as Brazilian Grafite of Al Ahli has also scored four goals so far this season.
Founeke Sy halved the deficit in the 18th minute after Gyan’s double, but further goals either side of half-time from Mosallem Faiz and Mohammed Abdulrahman clinched a comfortable victory for the visitors.
Dubai SC also picked up three points on the road – to go top of the fledgling standings – but needed a late winner from Richard Candelaresi to claim a 3-2 success after relinquishing a two-goal advantage at Al-Sha’ab.
