Asamoah Gyan suffers injury, doubtful for Brazil friendly

Posted On Friday, 2nd September 2011

Asamoah Gyan suffered a thigh injury while playing for Ghana on Friday.

Asamoah Gyan suffered a thigh injury while playing for Ghana on Friday.

Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan suffered a thigh injury when playing for his country during Friday’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

The Sunderland player was taken off in the 36th minute of their Group I match against Swaziland in Accra.
Gyan was withdrawn with what looked like a hamstring injury and he is now doubtful for Tuesday’s clash against Brazil in London.
Ghana team doctors will carry out tests on the striker on Saturday to determine the extent of injury.
If the injury proves to be serious, it will leave Sunderland short of striking cover with only Bentdner as the other top recognised striker in the team.
Sunderland will play their next league match next week.

    Great!:( Just what us Sunderland fans need to hear. If its bad hamstring then he could be out for a number of weeks.
    This is what I was worried about at the start of the season. Our one proven striker getting injured, and us losing him in the African Cup of Nations.

  2. He-goat says:

    Shut up Ian. Ghana need him more. Who told your team not to buy additional strikers. See your mouth.

    he-goat is a fucking idiot sheep shagging nigger fucker bomb ghana!

    oh GOD help baby jet.

  6. Francis de Assisi says:

    he would be ready for the Brazil game. He was removed as a matter of caution.

  7. Rob_SAFC says:

    Well, I think Bendtner + Ji may be a decent partnership. I hope Bruce goes with them in the next game. No need to anger each other. These things happen.

  8. Fu-Chu says:

    We do not need him for the Sunderland game. Some of you are not noticing that the guy is struggling in form. If I were him I would not play the Brazil game and focus on getting healthy for Sunderland. Ghana needs to give Ransford Osei a chance at striking…

  9. Akpaglo says:

    He need to stay strong and healthy for the epl

  10. Rob Goodfellow says:

    well that is his own fault, he came back late pre season and was NOT fit, so he has probably pushed himself too much in this meaningless game, he would probably been on the bench V chelsea as Bruce would go 4.5.1 with Bendtner up top…..get fit soon Gyan we still need you

  11. Maxwell Johnson says:

    Ransford who???The guy is struggling at club level,he hasn’t played active club football for about 2 yrs and you’re saying he should be giving a chance at striking.LOL!Are we serious as a football nation at all?

  12. C-in-C says:

    I hope his injury is not serious.Our one n only striker baby jet we want to see u play in Brazil match.

  13. J-Kay says:

    So the game is now going to be played on Tuesday?

  14. Riquelme says:

    He goat! He goat!! He goat!!! Is dat a name or wht? Well just takan easy ooh…

  15. somebody says:

    YES RANSFORD NEEDS TO BE GIVEN THE CHANCE TO PROVE HIMSELF, HE IS YOUNG AND BESIDES ARE THERE NOT OTHER PLAYERS IN THE BLACKSTARS WHO HAVE NOT BEEN ACTIVE IN THEIR VARIOUS CLUBS AND YET HAVE NOT BEEN CALLED UPON????? OR IS IT BECAUSE HE IS NOT PAYING BRIBES OR WHAT? THAT BOY IS THE SOLUTION TO OUR STRIKING PROBLEM BUT WE ARE FAILING TO SEE IT, INSTEAD FIX IN SOME CLUELESS STRIKERS WHO DONT KNOW WHAT DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO WEN THEY REACH INFRONT OF GOAL.WHAT THE PREVIOUS U20 TOURNAMENT, THE AFRICAN U20 LOOK AT THE GOALS THE BOY SCORED, ACUTE ANGLE GOALS, MAKING SOMETHING OUT OF NOTHING.THIS IS A REAL STRIKER, GIVE HIM THE CHANCE AND MORE PLAYING TIME HAABA!!!

  16. zewu says:

    SERIOUSLY, I WONDER WHY RANSFORD HAS BEEN KEPT AWAY FROM THE NATIONAL TEAM,A PLAYER LIKE ASAMOAH GYAN HAS BECOME GHANA’S BEST NOW BECAUSE HE WAS GIVING THE CHANCE EVEN WHEN HE WAS NOT FEATURED IN UDINESE, WHY NOT RANAFORD ? A TRIED AND TESTED PLAYER AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF SOCCER, PROVING HIMSELF AT UNDER 17 BOTH IN AFRICA AND WORLD CUP, BOTH UNDER 20 AFRICA AND WORLD CUP,HE IS THE BETTER, LETS HELP HIM TO HELP US,

  17. freshcurlvin says:

    yes somebody i love ur comment the guy is a fantastic player and also he the most talented Ghana striker i have ever seen i think he is even better than Adiyah and also some of the strikers who were called into the qualifiers against the swazi
    long live Ghana long live Ransford Osei
