Asamoah Gyan of Legon Cities is hoping to be picked in Ghana’s team for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) in Cameroon next year.
Gyan is hoping to play in his eighth consecutive Afcon after appearing in the last seven.
Asamoah, reached the semi-finals six times and appeared in two finals, both of which the Black Stars lost on penalties to Egypt in 2010 and Ivory Coast in 2015.
“I believe I gave it my all. Anything can happen in football. I’ve come so close so many times; I’ve gone to the final twice,” Gyan told 3Sports.
““We were meant to have the opportunity to win in 2015, but we didn’t, but I always trust in fat
Because the competition is set to begin in January, Charles Akonnor’s team should be revealed before December.
Gyan admits he isn’t at his best right now, but he isn’t giving up since he understands there is still time for him to be considered for selection.
“Everything happens for a purpose in this world; surprises are possible.” “I may not be well right now,” Asamoah Gyan said, “but who knows tomorrow; you could see me in the forthcoming games in January.”
Only single international trophy is lacking from Gyan’s Ghanaian career. He has the most goals (51), as well as the most games (109).
And he finds it frustrating since, since his debut in 2003, he has failed to win a trophy.
“It’s a somehow sad that we haven’t yet won it (the African Cup of Nations) nevertheless we will win it this season.”
I’m always asking myself why, because I was born into a generation that might easily have won the African Cup, but I tell myself that if I don’t, someone in my family will.
“I’m really proud of what I’ve accomplished in my life thus far, both locally and internationally.” People may not believe that, but I am ecstatic, and football fans understand what he means,” he stated once again.
The tournament will take place from January 9 to February 6, 2022, after being postponed twice due to bad weather concerns and Covid-19.
