Ghanaian football legend, Asamoah Gyan, has charged the Black Stars to approach the first leg of their World Cup Playoff against the Super Eagles of Nigeria like “wounded lions”.

He assured them of support of Ghanaians and charged them to make history again by beating Nigeria to the World Cup ticket.
He wrote: “The nation is fully behind you, to make it to the World Cup after all the set backs is a game changer achievement for the nation , yourselves & your families .
Step on that pitch as wounded lions & go make history once again.
Go Ghana Black Stars Go for Gold @ghanafaofficial.”
