Former Ghana international, Asamoah Gyan has praised Black Satellites striker Jerry Afriyie describing him as a player who has the potential to go far.

The 17-year-old was a key figure for the U-20 side that won the recently concluded African Games where Ghana won gold in the men's football.

The young striker is famously remembered for netting a 90th-minute winner as the Black Satellites stun Uganda.

Afriyie's performance caught the attention of the former Black Stars captain who believes the abilities of the player could propel him to the top.

"Jerry Afriyie is a very good player, Technically, he is good and he is a workaholic too. Despite a bit of inexperience in his movement off the ball, he is still very good," Gyan said on Asempa FM.

"His ball-striking ability is good as well. There's no wonder he scored three goals in the tournament. He's good technically. With good training and advice, he will go far," he added.

Jerry Afriyie ended the tournament scoring three goals for Desmond Ofei's side.
