Asamoah Gyan scored in six consecutive AFCON tournaments for Black Stars

He has given Ghana some unforgettable moments of heartbreak, the most profound of which happened in July 2010 against Uruguay.

He has missed crucial penalties at other times. He has had a love-hate relationship with the national.

He has brought incredible joys and numbing pain, but Asamoah Gyan has been a staple contributor to the Black Stars since 2003.
