Former Ghana midfield dynamo Anthony Annan has called on football enthusiasts in the country to put the unfortunate Asamoah Gyan’s penalty miss in the 2010 World Cup game against Uruguay behind and forge ahead.
Gyan missed a glorious penalty to deny Ghana qualification to a historic semifinals.
According to the FC Inter Turku ace midfielder, he weeps anytime Ghanaian criticize the former Sunderland striker for the penalty miss.
Speaking to Akoma 87.9 FM in Kumasi, Annan stated “It pains me when some Ghanaians criticize Asamoah Gyan for the Penalty miss against Uruguay” It’s so sad because we all knew he was our first penalty taker but that’s football, you can’t score all the time”.
The player further added “Appiah didn’t go to Gyan to take the ball from him, he went there to motivate him to score. Ghanaians should forget about it and move on,’’
Meanwhile, Annan,23, has revealed his readiness to return to the Black Stars if only head coach CK Akonnor finds him suitable enough in his game plan.
