Neil-Armstrong cited these examples as some of his achievement. He lamented how Ghanaian have rather decided to focus on Asamoah Gyan's negatives instead of focusing on his many laurels.

"I think Ghanaians are making too much of a meal from Asamoah Gyan and the penalty issues. The young man is a legend of Ghana football as far as I’m concerned and we don’t celebrate him enough," Neil-Armstrong said.

"... Asamoah Gyan will have a statue erected in his image in another country for what he has done for this nation and they will be hailing him," he added.
