Asamoah Gyan rallies support for Black Stars ahead of friendly against Iceland today

Published on: 07 June 2018

Black Stars skipper Asamoah Gyan is rallying support for the team ahead of their international friendly match against Iceland today despite Anas' exposé detailing corrupt practices in football trending. 

The team is ready to take on the World Cup-bound Iceland today as coach Kwesi Appiah's charges step up their preparations for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.  It is also to serve as a final warm-up game for Iceland ahead of the World Cup finals.

But with hours to kickoff, many Ghanaians have shown little interest in the game. This is after investigative journalist premiered his Number 12 documentary on Wednesday.

In the documentary, which GFA has reacted to, top officials were caught taking money to influence player selection in the national teams.

But Gyan, who is not part of the team in Laugardalsvollur, wants Ghanaians to support the team in spite of the ''difficult times'' football is facing in the country.

''In spite of the difficult times, my plea is, as we leave the matters to the appropriate authorities, the National Team is out there in a friendly today and still deserves some support cos it's Ghana,'' Gyan posted on Twitter.
