Ghana Black Stars captain, Asamoah Gyan, has marked the country’s 62nd Independence in grand style.
The country is celebrating her independence today, March 6, and many Ghanaians have wished the nation well.
However, Gyan, in celebrating the country’s freedom took to his Instagram handle to release two throwback videos.
In the first video, Gyan was in Black Stars shirt during an AFCON match against Mali in 2012.
In the said video, Gyan scored a sumptuous free-kick as Ghana won the game 2-0.
With the second video, it was a friendly game against England which ended 1-1.
Gyan came to the rescue of the four-time African champions by scoring a late equalizer.
The Three Lions had shot into the lead courtesy Andy Carroll’s superb strike. The match came off on March 30, 2011.
The videos have drawn mixed reactions as some fans congratulated him while others took swipes at him for missing a penalty against Uruguay during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

@efeluv: “I remember soo well ! When I was screaming and jumping around ! And lost my voice ! miss this Team Charley.”
@djmanni: “That goal against England, tho loved it was in London at the time was sooo happy we didn’t lose.”
@one_cedi_gh: “And the penalty u missed in the World Cup against Uruguay?.”
@nana_.kojo: “Goooallll, aka de penalty u miss against Uruguay no.”
@niiofoli_99: “baby jet show we penalty against Uruguay.”
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh reported earlier that Gyan’s wife, Gifty, has hinted of forgiving him and perhaps remain in their marriage.
Gyan had brought reproach on his family when he made it public that he wanted DNA tests carried out on all the three children he had with his wife.
He also indicated that he was no longer interested in their marriage and so wanted the court to annul it. Unfortunately for him, the DNA tests turned out to be positive, in that all the children belonged to him.
