Asamoah Gyan’s goal, which brought the scoreline to England 1, Ghana 1, was one of the most intricate goals I have ever seen scored. Asamoah Gyan was well and truly surrounded, and challenged at every turn. But he kept weaving and tapping the ball along and just melting his way through the crowd. And then he sidekicked the ball in, with just enough power to elude the outstretched figure of the England goalkeeper. I think the guy has eclipsed every star of the Black Stars I can think of. He’s now in the Osei Kofi class — for sheer artistry and imagination.
