Asamoah Gyan scores consolation goal in Al Ain Asian Champions League defeat

Asamoah Gyan scored for Al Ain

Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan scored the opening goal for Al Ain who slipped to a 2-1 away loss against Saudi side Al-Ittihad FC in the Asian Champions League on Wednesday.

Gyan shot Ain ahead in the 38th minute but they failed to protect the advantage as Al-Ittihad fought from behind to record a 2-0 win over the UAE title-holders.

With a new manager in charge, Ain were hoping to use the game inspire their domestic campaign and they were given the right impetus when Gyan scored late in the first-half to hand victory to his side (his second on a row in the competition).

Gyan has taken his tally to 22 in all competitions this season with Wednesday's goal.

    Scoring in any league is a challenge. However, I must say that from what I saw of the game, it is a bit of a stand around the 18 yard box league. I sort of doubt that he would get a clean run to head in that corner if he was playing against Germany or Portugal.
