2014 World Cup: Ghana star Asamoah Gyan extends goal tally in UAE league with brace

Published on: 01 May 2014
Asamoah Gyan now leads scorers chart in UAE with 28 goals

Asamoah Gyan scored two goals for Al Ain  who drew 2-2 with Al Jazira on Thursday in the penultimate Arabian Gulf League fixture.

The Ghana captain has now extended his lead on the scorers chart after registering 28 league goals.

Gyan picked up a long ball from Yassine El Ghanassy, worked his way inside the box and scored off a deft shot for a 21st-minute lead.

The Ghanaian striker had an opportunity to double the lead five minutes later, but his glancing header off an El Ghanassy cross fell agonizingly wide of the far post.

The combination made it good before the break, with Gyan neatly putting away a lobbed pass from El Ghanassy for the home side to go into the break with a 2-0 lead.

Jazira responded after the break when Felipe Caicedo pulled one back on 68 minutes and substitute Ali Ahmed Mabkhout snatched the equalizer in the 81st minute.

    And you can never exclude Richmond boakye yiadom from the world cup team. A player who is plying his trade in the Spanish league, a league with two teams in the champions league final and one in the uefa

    I don't understand gh coaches oo. U have a player like Richmond boakye yiadom, who is playing in the toughest league in the world(Spanish la liga) and you are finding it difficult to invite him for national duties.. God help our coaches to invite the right players for the world cup

    123 coaches or back seat drivers , you talk too much, honestly , why do you say Essien is slow, see you guys watch soccer but don't study and analyze,because Essien is new he doesn't get services as usual he is in a different league and he's new, so shut up and see how he performs and stop back seat driving. Muntari,Essien r holding midfielders respectively,and Essien, Ayew , Boateng/waris and kwadwo Asamoah and Gyan is the lead striker but Boaten or Waris shd b the diamond to connect with Gyan
