Asamoah Gyan must step up for Al Ain on big stage
By Patrick Akoto
Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan has firmly fixed his eyes on Tuesday’s make-or-break Champions League tie at Al Hilal after helping Al Ain to clinch the Pro-League title.
The Ghanaian international was simply out of this world when he scored a superb hat-trick in the 3-0 win over Dubai last Thursday.
Al Ain are second in group D but the pool is so delicately balanced that Tuesday night’s engagement with Al Hilal in Riyadh can rightfully be deemed make-or-break and the the 27-year-old is fully focused on making a much bigger impact.
“Now one is done, the main thing is to go on with the [Asian] Champions League,” Gyan said.”Everyone is focus is on the Champions League now.
“Now we concentrate on our next game in the Champions League and we’re going there to make sure we qualify from the group stage,” he said last week. “A positive result can determine whether we stay in the Champions League or not.”
