Bio

Gyan is responsible for one of Ghana's most memorable moments in World Cup play after he scored the nation's first goal in a finals match 68 seconds into the 2006 win over the Czech Republic. He'll be carrying much of the team's offensive burden, and he looked up to the task during the 2010 African Cup of Nations during which he scored three goals. Gyan certainly had a lot to prove at the event after he and his brother threatened to quit the team in 2008 during the African Cup of Nations and had to be persuaded to return. His play earlier this year indicated personal growth for the 24-year-old. There is some concern after he suffered a thigh injury in April while playing for French club Rennes, but he insists he'll be ready to go for the start of competition. Extremely aggressive, with good vision and an ability to strike on target, he's managed to play through injuries before so there's good reason to believe he can again. He's one of the Black Stars' biggest weapons during competition. Gyan was also on Ghana's 2004 Olympic team. He has recorded 13 goals in 29 games with Rennes and he has 17 goals in 32 international games, more than likely earning him a spot in the starting XI for the Black Stars.
