PLAYERS: Asamoah Gyan
  Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan is facing a tough competition for his UAE goalking title from Brazilian striker Grafite. What could have been misinterpreted for hubris now seems simply a declaration of foresight. “I believe I can score 30 again, or even 35 this season,” Grafite told The National before the first whistle was blown on Pro League 2012/13. “I have the quality to score more. That’s what I work for.” The Al Ahli striker has spent the past seven months confirming his capabilities. Having marked a first season in UAE football with 30 goals in 35 appearances – 13 scored in 12 Etisalat Cup matches – Grafite has continued to terrorise opposition defences, notching 23 times in 17 appearances. In fact, make that 23 in 15 league fixtures: not one of the Brazilian’s goals has come outside the top flight. So another campaign, another race for the Golden Boot. His main rival bears certain predictability, too. Asamoah Gyan, Al Ain’s consistently fruitful forward, arrived here in September
