Ghana's No. 1

Asamoah Gyan scores for Legon Cities in 3-1 friendly defeat to Black Stars

Published on: 17 March 2021

Iconic striker Asamoah Gyan was on target for Premier League side Legon Cities in their 3-1 defeat to the Black Stars in a friendly match on Wednesday.

USM Algiers new signing Kwame Poku opened the scoring for the senior national team after capitalizing on a defensive howler.

Mubarak Wakaso increased the tally at the start of the second half before Bechem United captain Salifu Moro made it 3-0.

Substitute Asamoah Gyan grabbed the consolation for the Ghana Premier League  side - connecting beautifully to beat goalkeeper Eric Ofori Antwi.

Coach Charles Akonnor assembled a dominated home-based side for the friendly match with a number of foreign-based players unable to travel for the double-header due to Covid-19 concerns.

The Black Stars are using the friendly matches to prepare for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against South Africa and Sao Tome this month.

Eric Ofori Antwi (GK), Philemon Baffour, Ibrahim Moro, Jamaldeen Harun, Ismail Ganiyu, Mubarak Wakaso, Rashid Nortey, Salifu Moro, Gladson Awako, Yaw Annor and Kwame Poku.
