2014 World Cup: Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan perpetuates scoring run with a brace for Al Ain in Champions League

Asamoah Gyan scored a brace for Al Ain in the Asian Champions League

Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan perpetuated his impressive scoring run for Al Ain by scoring a double in their 5-0 demolition of Qatari side Lakhwiya in the Asian Champions League on Tuesday evening. 

The 28-year-old was rakish upfront as he scored twice and provided assist for two other goals at the Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa Stadium in Doha.

Gyan's impressive scoring run has seen him notch five goals in his last two games for Al Ain.

Despite enjoying an inconsistent campaign in domestic season, Al Ain are high-flying in the continental competition and on Tuesday night it was the performance of the former Sunderland hit-man who propelled them to victory over a below par Qatari side.

Gyan has assisted Diaky and Brosque for the first two goal in the 25th and 43rd minutes respectively before registering his name on the score-sheet.

In the 69th minute when the time arrived for the lethal forward to score his first goal, he did that in style; pestering two defenders with dazzling skills inside the box before rattling the back of the net with a firm shot.

Saed Mohanad added the fourth before Gyan completed the riot with a 90th minute finish.

    Is He capable of converting any penalty against Usa, Portugal, & Germany? He shall continue squandering en thats y ghana was kicked out in 2012 afcon semis. Anyway Ghana is benefiting from the dubious oil contracts he's involved in which is sent to ghana specificaly to the Ashanti King in exchange of charms he is applying to score those goals.

    Lol! I tell you what son even 5 goals in the UAE league or even the ACL doesn't even equal a goal in the EPL or any of the elite leagues. Yes he's scoring buh the question is can he replicate this same form in Brazil? Am saying this cuz his performance in the last 2 nations cup was really shambolic to say the least, and that was due to lack of sharpness upfront cuz he wasn't playing against tougher defenders. Tournaments are way different from qualifiers & exhibition games. Playing & scoring against brick layers, Imams & part time workers doesn't make you a potent striker. If you know you're that good then you gotta play with the best is simple as that.

    Gyan could have scored five goals alone. He was massive in that game above the rest. Ghana is ready for the world cup.
