Asamoah Gyan is looking forward to winning the AFCON with the Black Stars

Captain of the Black Stars, Asamoah Gyan believes their 2-0 win over Uzbekistan giants Bunyodkor will serve as a huge boost ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations campaign.

Speaking after the game at the team’s camp in Dubai he said, the players are confident after the win and would go a long way to reflect on their performance during the competition.

The skipper came off the bench to score one of the two goals in the game and hopes the Black Stars would do well when the competition begins this weekend.

“At the end of the day we won and everybody’s happy. It’s a one-off game and I think it builds our confidence before the tournament in Gabon," Gyan told Sport360.

“The boys are happy here and they’ve enjoyed Dubai, and it was good to have some Ghana fans here watching us too.”

The four-time Cup of Nations winners would be in Group D alongside Mali, Egypt and Uganda in their quest to win this year’s competition.
