Despite being on a record breaking spree, the Ghana captain isn't being distracted by the pursuit of personal glory at AFCON 2017.
The Al Ahli striker scored his 8th AFCON goal on Saturday against Mali to emerge Ghana's all-time top scorer in the country's history at the tournament but says breaking records and reaching milestones are not part of his agenda.

"In tournaments we don’t look for personal glory," Gyan told pressmen. "When it happens I will be happy but when the team wins I am happier. As captain I need to lead the team to wins, that is the most important thing. After that, if I am lucky to be on the score sheet, I will take it."

"People expect you to score as a striker and that is what I have done over the years. I am still young and I want to win the trophy. It is the reason why we are here," he added.
The Black Stars have to avoid a defeat on Wednesday to win Group D and stay in Port Gentil.
