Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan has reversed his decision to quit the Black Stars just a day after he announced his retirement from international football, ClassFMonline.com can confirm.

Gyan’s U-turn follows calls on him by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on Tuesday, 21 May 2019 to reconsider his decision.

Gyan announced his retirement from the Black Stars over Coach Kwesi Appiah’s decision to strip him of the captainship band at this year’s Africa Cup of Nations competition in Egypt.

In a fresh statement following his conversation with the president, Gyan said: “I’ve taken the request of His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in good faith and will make myself available for selection by Coach Kwesi Appiah”.


The Africa Nations Cup kicks off on 21 June.

The Black Stars are in Group F with Cameroon, Benin and Guinea-Bissau.

Gyan, who made his international debut at the age of 17 against Somalia in 2003, is Ghana’s all-time goal scorer in the national team with 51 goals in his 106 appearances.

He has also featured in three World Cups – 2006, 2010 and 2014.
