In what appears as a fatal analysis from many football pundits that Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo was the first player on earth to have seen the back of the net in eight successive major tournament, it has been discovered that Ghana’s Asamoah Gyan holds a better record.
Gyan who came out via his Twittle handle has noted that he had scored in nine successive major tournaments.
“People disregard my achievements in the World Cup history but I want the whole world to know that I have not been given the fair shake but records will remain forever,” the 32-year-old Ghanaian tweeted.
Gyan has scored in six African Cup of Nations and three World Cup tournaments.
The big question, why do Africans ignore their own pride to forcefully include themselves in another man’s success?
