Boakye in the 89th minute executed the coup de grace to hand Ghana a 5-0 victory at the Accra Sports Stadium.

The former Sunderland striker has since bagged 51 goals in the shirt of the Black Stars.

Asamoah Gyan after registering his 50th milestone goal as Ghana mauled Ethiopia 5-0 in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers said his best goal was scored against Somalia in 2003.

“I have scored a lot of goals as everybody knows but I will say the goal I scored against Somalia in 2003 is my memorable goal as it was my debut appearance for my country at the senior level,” Gyan said.

On the 17th anniversary since Gyan bagged his maiden goal for the Black Stars, the Ghanaian football fraternity has celebrated him for his illustrious football career.
