According to a Kessben FM report, Asamoah Gyan, who was unable to play the match due to an injury doled out a whopping $62,000 to cater for the return to Accra for the team.

The team finally arrived in Accra on Tuesday evening.

Meanwhile, a sports pundit Patrick Osei-Agyemang popularly known as Countryman Songo has demanded that football experts end their over-the-top calculations regarding the Black Stars' qualification into the World Cup.

According to him, the 5-1 win for the Black Stars against Congo on Tuesday, should not raise any hopes of a World Cup appearance, as that win is insignificant.
