FIFA wishes Ghana legend Asamoah Gyan a happy 36th birthday

World Football governing body FIFA has wished former Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan a happy birthday as he turns 36 today.

Gyan’s career has been absolutely remarkable with loads of cherishable moments.

He started his professional career at age 18 with Ghana Premier League club Liberty Professionals and has gone on to feature for a host of teams-including Premier League side Sunderland.

Asamoah Gyan is the country’s all-time leading scorer for the senior national team, having scored 52 goals in 107 appearances with his first coming on his debut against Somalia on 19 November 2003.

Gyan has  appeared in three World Cups and has scored more goals (6) than any African player in the global showpiece.

In 2010 Gyan was voted BBC African Football of year, only to miss out on the CAF award to Samuel Eto’o.

He is the only player to win UAE Pro League Top scorer three times in a row plus AFC Championship League Top scorer and 2010 AFC Foreign Player of the Year.

Gyan also scored at the 2017 AFCON to become Ghana’s all-time top scorer at the AFCON, beating deputy skipper Andre Ayew and Osei Kofi to the feat.
