The Ghanaians player who plays for Turkish side Kayserispor said it would be his biggest legacy if he leads the Black Stars to win the coveted continental title.

“I have tried a lot for my country but the biggest legacy I want to leave is winning the African of Nations trophy for Ghana.”

“I’m ready for the AFCON. By the grace of God, I’m fit. Yesterday I came in the game in the 80th minute and that is good for me," he added.


Gyan is currently Ghana’s all-time top scorer with 51 goals from 106 international games.
