Black Stars Captain - Asamoah Gyan

Black Stars Captain Asamoah Gyan has expressed his delight with his personal achievement with the team after scoring his 50th goal mark in the 5-0 thumping of the Walias of Ethiopia on Sunday.

Gyan now becomes the fifth African to reach that feat with their national teams. Zambia’s Godfrey Chitalu, Hossam Hassan of Egypt, Didier Drogba of Ivory Coast and Samuel Eto of Cameroon, are the dream set of players to have reached the 50 goal landmark in national colours.

The Black Stars brought smiles to millions of faces across Ghana on Sunday following a huge 5-0 win over Ethiopia in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying played at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi.

Captain Asamoah Gyan achieved his long coveted half century mark of 50 goals for the team when he opened the scoring by the 10th minute. John Boye and Ebenezer Ofori followed with a strike each while Raphael Dwamena delivered a brace.

Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah named three debutants in his starting line up for Sunday’s qualifier against Ethiopia in Kumasi.

To spark off an extraordinary second coming, Ghana coach James Kwesi Appiah has called on Ghanaians to throw a massive support behind the Black Stars as they face the Walias of Ethiopia in the 2019 AFCON Qualifier.

Ghana will welcome the Ethiopians to the Baba Yara Sports Stadium, a venue the Black Stars have not played there since 2014, in the first game of the qualifiers.

Ghanaian midfielder Sulley Ali Muntari and former Black Stars captain Stephen Appiah

Ghanaian midfielder Sulley Ali Muntari has extolled the leadership qualities of former Black Stars captain Stephen Appiah describing him as a better leader of the senior national team.

Appiah who is now the technical coordinator of the senior national team, captained the Black Stars to its first World Cup in Germany 2006 and also led the nation to South Africa in 2010.

Sulley Muntari’s brawl with Ghana Football Association spokesperson Sannie Darra continues unabated after launching a scathing attack on the Communication Director.

The former AC Milan midfielder is believed not to have a good relationship with Sannie Darra who has been working as the spokesperson for the Nation’s Football governing body for some time now.
