Gyan ends international retirement
- Updated: July 11, 2012
Asamoah Gyan has reversed his retirement from international football and will play for Ghana again, six months after quitting the national team.
The 26-year, who quit the Black Stars in February, will be available for the Black Stars when they take on Malawi in their next game in September.
The revelation is a major boost for the Black Stars with 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers and 2014 World Cup qualifiers as the key matches for the country in the coming months.
Gyan took an ‘indefinite break’ from the national team after getting a torrent of abuse from some fans but has now decided to return to boost the side.
The striker says he wants to help his country to qualify for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations and 2014 World Cup.
“The decision to return was made with the incredible support of my family, friends and the football family of Ghana,” Gyan said.
”I’m happy about the way the GFA handled the issue; they spoke to me and discussed my problems with my family.
“I am fully focused on our clear goals ahead, in helping my nation qualify for both the AFCON 2013 and the World Cup in 2014.”
Gyan seems to have cleared his mind after sealing his permanent move from English side Sunderland to UAE side Al Ain late last week.
Ghana struggled to find a competent replacement for the in-form striker who is the country third all-time leading scorer. He has 59 Ghana caps.
