Asamoah Gyan grabbed a brace as his UAE side Al Ain rallied to beat neighbours Al Jazira 2-1 at home to cruise to the quarter-final of the Asian Champions League.

The score line which is repeat of the first leg clash gave Al Ain a 4-2 aggregate win with Gyan scoring in both ties.

Jazira shocked the hosts and took the lead when left-back Abdulla Mousa's deflected cross spun kindly to Ali Mabkhout to put them ahead after 17 minutes.

After the break, Al Ain came back into the picture and piled pressure on Al Jazira.

Gyan place home from inside the penalty box after being played in by the influential Mohamed Abdulrahman to level the scores on 61 minutes.

An unlikely comeback was made close to impossible when Gyan replicated the same technique to effortlessly slot in, following a selfless pass from Diaky.

Gyan leads the scorers chart with ten goals in eight matches.

    As much as i respect Gyan, i believe he needs to prove his mettle in Europe. Assuming he was playing against Pepe of Portugal...not sure he would have had a sniff of the balls, let alone side foot the keeper.

    Why do some of you guys keep saying this shit? Gyan has got nothing to prove to nobody! When he dismantled the England defense and scored against Joe Hart, where was he playing then? During to African World Cup qualifier last year was Gyan not the highest scorer? He has played at the highest level in Italy, France, and England where he did not disappoint. He made history in two previous world cups. What the **** does Gyan has to prove to you dadaba or anyone? If you got nothing to do with your life, please let Gyan be! Enough of this bullshit.
