Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) has honored Ghanaian international footballer, Asamoah Gyan as he pens down a press statement announcing his retirement from National and club football.
Asamoah Gyan became the new sensation for the black stars of Ghana after the 2006 World Cup where he became the youngest Ghanaian to score in the tournament.
He then rose to prominence with international deals in Europe and other part of the world.
Gyan has undoubtedly been Ghana’s most reliable striker in the last two decades and his record for the national team is impeccable.
The former Sunderland star is currently his country’s all-time top scorer, having scored 51 goals in his time with the Black Stars.
For so long Gyan held the record of being the first player to score in nine consecutive major international tournaments without even knowing.
The veteran striker scored in every major tournament from the 2006 World Cup to the 2017 AFCON and that record was only equalled by Cristiano Ronaldo during Euro 2020.
Gyan spent four years playing in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) after swapping Premier League side Sunderland for Al Ain in 2011.
And he made his mark in the Asian country, even becoming the UAE Pro League’s fifth highest scorer with 100 goals.
Today as he retires , FIFA celebrated him with some stunning goals he scored during his time as a striker for the Black stars of Ghana.
