New Sunderland striker Asamoah Gyan insists his World Cup heartache is behind him and that what happened in South Africa can only make him a better player.
Gyan was one of the stand out performers in Ghana's run to the quarter-finals, scoring three times as they became something of a Cinderella team.
However, Gyan will also be remembered for missing a last-minute penalty against Uruguay that would have put Ghana into a semi-final with Holland.
â€œYou have to be strong and move on,â€ said Gyan after completing his Â£13.1m move from French club Rennes.
â€œIt was a major, major disappointment for me but thatâ€™s in the past now.
â€œI have to concentrate on the positives, I had a good tournament, Iâ€™ve kept mentally strong and Iâ€™m looking forward to the future challenge with Sunderland.â€
Sunderland will now boast a front two valued at well over Â£20m as Gyan teams-up with the clubâ€™s previous record transfer Darren Bent, who cost Â£10m.
