Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan has vowed to turn around his modest goalscoring record in the Africa Cup of Nations when the tournament starts on Saturday.
The Black Stars are among the favourites for the competition which will be played until early February.
The Al-Ain striker has scored just five goals in his three previous tournaments for the Black Stars despite the team reaching at least the semi-finals on each occasion.
But the former Sunderland forward, who is now the captain of the Black Stars, is not worried by the pressure on him to provide goals.
“I’m not disturbed because my ratio of goals with the national team is impressive. It is natural people expect you to score as striker, but it is not always so,” Gyan told Fifa.com.
“Sometimes you have to create the chances for others to also score. I always do my best to help the team to victory.”
Gyan has scored 28 international goals and his quest to extend his scoring for the Black Stars will be affected by his decision not to take penalties during regulation time.
