Gyan reveals why he was benched against Ethiopia in Afcon qualifier
Asamoah Gyan has indicated that he was left on the bench against Ethiopia in Ghana’s 2:0 win on Sunday due to tactical reason.
The country’s all-time leading goalscorer was unused in Addis Ababa but according to him, it was based on the tactical approach of the game.
“Its [substitution] was based on tactical reason as you could see that it got to a point where we were under pressure and so at that particular point, we needed a midfielder and defender and that’s why we saw Afriyie Acquah and Jonathan Mensah being introduced into the game just to keep the result intact because the pressure was becoming unbearable on us,” the Kayserispor forward told Angel FM.
Jordan Ayew scored a brace in the first half of the game to ensure the four-time African champions leapfrogged their opponents to a second position on the log standings.
Ghana will host Kenya in the final round of game in March next year.
