“My biggest regret as a former captain was failing to engage in 2015 AFCON Final Penalty Shoot-Out”- Asamoah Gyan Reveals

Ghanaian Former Striker, Asamoah Gyan discloses his biggest regret as not partaking in the 2015 African Cup Of Nations Final Penalties against the Elephants of Ivory Coast.

The legendary striker revealed this in an interview on Peace Fm’s Monday Morning show “Kokrokoo”.

He told host Kwami Sefa Kayi that on hindsight, he feels he should have played.

“I will say (my biggest regret) is when I had to ask to be substituted when we were playing against Ivory Coast in 2015. I feel if I could have taken part in the penalty shootout if I were in but due to some circumstances and things people were saying, I felt I have to give the chance to someone else to play because I had said I wouldn’t take penalty kicks anymore. That’s why I did that change. But although there were a lot of things involved that made me ask for that change, not just because of the penalty . . . I say that’s my regret as a captain during that time,” he said.
