- The media has widely reported the news about Ronaldo making history at the ongoing World Cup
- But Asamoah Gyan is hurt, saying people disregard his achievement at the World Cup
- He said he is the one with the record of scoring 9 goals consecutively, and not Cristiano Ronaldo
Asamoah Gyan has hit at critics who have rated Cristiano Ronaldo higher than, or equal to him in terms of goals in World Cup history.
Gyan broke his silence with a Tweet after it was allegedly reported 'wrongly' that Ronaldo had become the first man to score at eight successive major tournaments.
An obviously unhappy Gyan complained of being discriminated against, because people disregarded his achievement in the World Cup history.
However, he is happy about the fact that the records are there for all to see that he is the one who has made the record, not Ronaldo.
Gyan tweeted: "People disregard my achievements in the World Cup history but I want the whole world to know that I have not been given the fair shake but records will remain forever."
Ronaldo scored a stunning hat trick in Portugal's 3-3 draw with Spain on Friday night, as he netted in an eighth major tournament in a row.
While it was reported that Ronaldo was the first to achieve that feat, it was in fact Asamoah Gyan, who has gone one better and scored in nine major tournaments in a row.
Striker Gyan, who plays for Kayserispor in Turkey, boasts an impressive CV at major tournaments, finding the target at three World Cups and six African Nations Cup tournaments.
His first goal came against Czech Republic at the 2006 World Cup, before following that up with the first goal of the African Nations Cup in 2008, against Guinea.
Three more goals followed at AFCON 2010, including the winner against Nigeria in the semifinals. Gyan then netted three goals at the World Cup in 2010, although was left heartbroken in the quarterfinals after missing a last minute penalty against Uruguay that would have sent Ghana to the semis.
A free kick against Mali at AFCON 2012 was then followed by a goal against Niger at the 2013 tournament. Gyan scored against Germany and then Portugal at the World Cup in 2014 and found the net against Algeria at AFCON 2015 and then two years later against Mali, stated a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Kwese.espn.com.
That made it nine tournaments in a row for the former Sunderland and Al Ain striker, 32.
