Former Ghana Black Stars captain, Stephen Appiah has named his top five players to have played for the Black Stars since 1992 and surprisingly ommited Asamoah Gyan.
Stephen Appiah who played with Asamoah Gyan at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa where Gyan’s infamous penalty kick shattered the hearts of Ghanaians, did not hesitate to drop his list.
The 40-year-old midfielder compiled his list of his best Ghanaian players since 1992 when he replied to a tweet by Betway Ghana, a popular betting company in Ghana. However, Appiah controversially left out Asamoah Gyan, who is currently Ghana’s all-time top scorer.
