Asamoah Gyan advices Ghanaians not to be too expectant of the Black Stars

Former Ghana Captain Asamoah Gyan has urged Ghanaians to temper their expectations for the Black Stars, despite the team’s recent impressive victories in the 2026 World Cup qualifiers.

After a winless streak throughout 2024, the Black Stars secured back-to-back wins against Mali and the Central African Republic in the June 2024 qualifiers for the Canada, Mexico, and USA tournament.

These victories have propelled Ghana to second place in Group I of the African qualifiers for the 2026 World Cup, with nine points, just behind Comoros on goal difference.

Demonstrating resilience, the Black Stars overturned a one-goal deficit to achieve a 2-1 victory over Mali in Bamako, and they came from behind at halftime to secure a thrilling 4-3 win against the Central African Republic in Kumasi.

However, Asamoah Gyan believes that Coach Otto Addo will need five years to build a team capable of competing for trophies.

“Ghanaians should limit their expectations of the Black Stars,” the Ghana all-time top scorer told Kumasi-based Pure FM.

“The players are young, we should allow the coach to build the team, let’s say five years to develop the team. After that, then we can expect them to win trophies.”
