Ukraine’s leading university Alfred Noble University has conferred an honorary doctorate degree on Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan.

Gyan is Ghana’s leading goal scorer with 51 goals since joining the national team and Africa’s leading scorer at the Fifa World Cup. The event was held at the Faculty of Law of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) Saturday, July 08, 2017.
