Asamoah Gyan: Ghanaians Want Revenge

Asamoah Gyan has disclosed his love to play in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar with the Black Stars.

The 36-year-old hopes to repay the 2010 quarter-final World Cup loss to Uruguay at this year’s World Cup in Qatar.

The Ghana Black Stars have been placed in Group H with Uruguay, Portugal, and Korea Republic at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

The Ghana Legend, who has expressed his wish to represent the African giant in this year’s World Cup, believes this might be another opportunity to make things right.

“The whole world knows what happened [during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa],” Gyan told BBC.

“When the draw was made and they saw Uruguay in Ghana’s group [in Qatar] the only thing that came into mind was revenge. Ghanaians want revenge.

“Personally, I just sat back and smiled because I understand how the game goes. What happened in 2010 is behind me [but] maybe there might be another opportunity.”

The former Black Stars captain claims the most important game in the Group will be against Uruguay and he hopes to get a chance to prove a point.

“When the time comes, and I’m part of the team, and we play against Uruguay, you never know what’s going to happen,” Gyan continued.

“Obviously, I’m human. I have that at the back of my mind that maybe if I get another chance I can be able to prove myself.

“The most important game for Ghanaians right now is the game against Uruguay. Because this is at the back of everybody’s mind, going for revenge.”

Gyan played for a host of European clubs, including Udinese, Rennes, and Sunderland, and is currently Ghana’s all-time leading scorer with 51 goals.
