I Told My Childhood Friends I Would Qualify Ghana To Our First World Cup – Gyan



Asamoah Gyan, the former captain of the Black Stars, recently disclosed how he had previously told his boyhood pals that he was on the rise to fame.

He revealed to Kweku Sintim Misa on the KSM Show that he had previously warned his buddies to keep an eye out for him and that he would one day become a football star.

“I knew what I wanted to be, so in class, I remember I had a friend and sometimes I give him a pen and tell him ‘interview me, because I will be a star.’

“So, I will stand in front of the class and he will be asking me questions and I will be answering. He will be asking me questions as a football star because I saw it, I knew I will play for the national team,” he revealed.

He added that, he had also assured his colleagues that he would be part of the Black Stars team to play for the first time at the World Cup.

“I even told them I will be in the first batch to qualify Ghana to the world cup and it happened. I told most of my friends at that time … it is something I saw,” he added.

Gyan played a key role in the Black Stars squad, coached by Stephen Appaih, qualifying Ghana for her first World Cup in Germany in 2006.

With six goals at the World Cup, Gyan leads all African goal scorers. 

He became the Black Stars’ leading scorer with 51 goals in 109 games played.
