Asamoah Gyan calls for massive support against Egypt

Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan has called on Ghanaians to rally behind the team in their final qualifying game of the 2018 FIFA World Cup against Egypt.

The Black Stars will welcome the Pharaohs of Egypt to the Cape Coast Stadium on Sunday as they hope to end to their disappointing World Cup qualifying campaign on a high.

And Gyan, who is returning to the side after missing the last two games in the qualifiers through injury, has entreated the Cape Coast fans to offer massive support to the team to record a victory over the North Africans.

“I expect Cape Coast fans to come in their numbers and support the Black Stars. This is the first time we playing in-front of the Cape Coast because most the players have not played here before likewise many fans not being able to see lots of these stars,” Gyan told reporters.

“So it’s going to be a 50-50 thing, so am pleading for everyone to support and I also entreat the journalist to promote the game to improve the numbers at the stadium.”

The Black Stars are expected to continue their preparations at the Cape Coast Stadium ahead of Sunday’s encounter.
