Asamoah Gyan eyes Nigeria scalp in next month's friendly
Black Stars striker Asamoah Gyan has aimed to continue Ghana’s dominance over Nigeria in the 9 August international friendly.
The Super Eagles will attempt a win over the Black Stars in five years at Vicarage Stadium when the two giants renew their rivalry in a Fifa international friendly game.
The Sunderland ace, who scored the solitary goal that separated the two sides in the quarter-finals of the 2010 Nations Cup in Angola, has promised another stellar performance.
“There is a big rivalry between Ghana and Nigeria. They will try to win this time but we are also upbeat about our chances. Let’s see what God will do. We will win,” He told Accra-based Peace FM.
Nigeria have not beaten Ghana since Taiye Taiwo scored from a screamer in the Group D opener of the 2006 Nations Cup in Egypt.
Gyan, 25, is the top scorer in the Black Stars with 26 goals from 48 caps.
