Gyan: Ghana Will Make Africa Proud Again

Ghana captain, Asamoah Gyan, has tipped the Black Stars will repeat their success from the 2010 World Cup and be Africa’s best team in Brazil.

Ghana were only the third African team to reach the quarter-final at a World Cup, but were eliminated under bizarre circumstances by Uruguay.

Forward Luis Suarez cleared a Ghana attempt with his hand on the goal-line in the dying minutes of extra-time, but Gyan failed to score the subsequent penalty and the Black Stars lost the following penalty shootout.

However, Gyan insists his team has been waiting for the 2014 World Cup to 'achieve an even better result' in Brazil.

“We left the last competition with a bang, although under strange circumstances. And the fans have still not forgotten about it so I believe that they will still be waiting to see what we can do again this time,” the Ghana captain said.

“The team has been waiting a long time since the 2010 World Cup in which we reached the quarter finals.

“Being so close to becoming the first African team to reach the semi-final was a great triumph but painful at the same time and (we) are really motivated to come back and achieve an even better result.

“I believe that we can only get better this time at the World Cup.”

Ghana are drawn in Group G with Germany, Portugal and the USA.
