Gyan Ranked 4th Best Striker Worldwide
Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan has been ranked as the 4th best striker in the world in 2014 by respected French football magazine L’Equipe.
The Al Ain goal-machine came behind Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, who raked in 61 goals in the year under review.
His sworn rival Lionel Messi came second with 51 goals and Red Bull Salzburg striker Jonathan Soriano with 55 goals.
Gyan has become an amazing scoring freak since joining the gulf side in 2012 where he has emerged goal king in the last two years.
He netted 22 times for the United Arab Emirates side in the League, three in the UAE President’s Cup, 12 in the Asian Champions League and six during the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers for the Black Stars.
He also emerged Africa’s all-time leading scorer at the World Cup, surpassing the record held by Cameroonian legend Roger Milla.
Asamoah Gyan is one of the best strikers in the world!
