Asamoah Gyan, Skipper of Ghana's senior national football team, the Black Stars, has revealed that he wishes he could go back and retake the penalty he took during the 2010 World Cup he missed during Ghana's game against Uruguay.
Seeming as he's an accomplished football player who's done well for himself both in the national, and international arena, Asamoah Gyan was invited to speak at the last year's edition of the LEAD series held at Accra Mall on Saturday, December 30th, 2017.
Speaking at the event, Asamoah Gyan revealed that he wishes he could go back and retake the notorious penalty that saw Ghana lose the chance to make history as the first African side to reach the semi-final stage of the World Cup.
The veteran football player who's gone on to become the most prolific goal scorer of the Ghanaian senior national team added that the fact that he couldn't score that penalty still haunts him.
The LEAD Series is an initiative that aims to inspire younger generations with tales from prominent and successful individuals who's contributions have impacted society.
Other prominent Ghanaians to have featured in the series are the likes of Sarkodie, Reggie Rockstone, Ameyaw Debrah and Anita Erskine.
