Winger Edwin Gyasi has expressed delight at scoring on his home debut for Ghana.
The Norway-based attacker’s goal earned the Black Stars a point in their final World Cup qualifying game at home to Egypt in Cape Coast on Sunday.
Gyasi’s goal came three minutes after the Pharaohs had taken the lead through Mahmoud Shikabala. The Aalesund player hit the ball from outside the box which took a slight deflection to beat goalkeeper Elkramy.
”It’s my first international goal in my second call-up for the Black Stars. It feels great.
“When I scored I saw my family jubilating, the whole crowd – it was amazing,” the 26-year-old said after the match.
”We wanted to win the match, especially when you play home, but 1-1 is better than losing the game.
”I’m never happy after the match. I can always be better. I’m happy that I scored my first international goal, that’s on top of my mind right now.
”I will analyse the match. My father does it for me all the time and then I will know that I reached my level,” Gyasi added.
Gyasi, who was recently spotted by Coach Kwasi Appiah, made his debut for Ghana when he came on late into the 5-1 victory at Congo in September.
