Black Stars Captain, Asamoah Gyan, has revealed the depth of pain he feels whenever he is in South Africa, after Barcelona’s Luis Suarez’ magical hand prevented Ghana from making it past the quarter final of the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.
The Black Stars are due to play the Bafana Bafana of South Africa in a friendly today at the Mabhida Stadium at 17:00 hrs GMT.
According to Ghana’s leading all-time goalscorer – 49 goals – he feels inexplicable pain whenever he recalls the unfortunate incident that happened in 2010, though he was quick to add that, personally, it made him strong.
He said: “The incident has been haunting me, once in while and, not even when in South Africa alone but in my daily life.
“But it has made me a strong man and life goes on, but I’m here to do what I do best and leave afterwards.”
Ghana failed to secure all three points in their group opener against their Ugandan counterparts in last Friday’s opening 2018 World Cup qualifiers.
