Asamoah Gyan is yet to come to terms with his 120th minute penalty miss against Uruguay in the 2010 World Cup.
Gyan was presented with a golden opportunity to put Ghana 2-1 up after current Barcelona forward Luis Suarez deliberately handled a Dominic Adiyiah effort.
The former Liverpool striker was sent off and a penalty awarded Ghana but Gyan failed to convert crushing his effort against the crossbar of Fernando Muslera.
“I was even surprised myself about how high my kicks were going. My penalties don’t go that high.” Asamoah Gyan said on Max TV.
“Even during the penalty shootout that I scored my kick was so high and I didn’t understand.” Gyan explained.
The former Liberty Professionals striker will be remembered as one of the greatest players Ghana has ever had after scoring 51 goals for the Black Stara but also this Uruguay penalty failure – that would have created a bigger history not only for Ghana but the whole of Africa if he had scored – is some source of public discussion that is never going to stop at the mention of his name.
