AFCON 2019: Gyan Eager To Achieve Legacy By Clinching Tournament
MAY 8, 2019 CUP OF NATIONS

Black Stars skipper, Asamoah Gyan has insisted that his ultimate goal is to win the Africa Cup of Nations.

The African football powerhouse has not won the Nations Cup since 1982, having come close in 1992, 2010 and 2015.

However, the Kayerispor forward says not being able to lift Africa's prestigious trophy has remained a major source of concern for him and his teammates.

The 33-year old is expected to lead the team in Egypt and has already set the target of winning the tournament for the country.

"Not winning the AFCON is a major worry for us the players," he told Kessben FM.

"In our private conversation, we the players talk a lot about this AFCON."

"I have tried a lot for my country but the biggest legacy I want to leave is winning the AFCON trophy for Ghana," he added.

Coach Kwesi Appiah will be announcing his team for the tournament next month, with the team scheduled to camp in the UAE as part of preparation.
