Asamoah Gyan’s accomplishments for the Black Stars are what Antoine Semenyo plans to emulate.
In an interview with Ghanaweb, the Premiership striker said: “I used to watch him when he came to AFCON competitions and the World Cup. He was such a big player and I dream to be exactly like him”
Gyan is the all-time leading goalscorer of the Ghana national team, with 51 goals. He represented Ghana at the FIFA World Cups in 2006, 2010, and 2014. He is now the most prolific African goal scorer in World Cup history with six goals.
Gyan has competed for Ghana at the 2004 Summer Olympics and seven Africa Cup of Nations competitions in 2008, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2019, where he helped the team place third in 2008 and second in 2010 and 2015, respectively.
His autobiography, LeGYANdry, was published in Accra at the Kempinski Gold Coast Hotel. Semenyo, a Ghanaian player currently playing for AFC Bournemouth, was born in England.
On June 1, 2022, he made his international debut for Ghana in a 3-0 victory over Madagascar in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match. Semenyo was added to Ghana’s 26-man roster for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar on November 14, 2022.
