Black Stars striker Asamoah Gyan has said the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) in Egypt is likely to be his last as Ghana exit the competition courtesy a 4 – 5 penalty defeat by Tunisia in Monday’s round of 16th clash.

Speaking to journalists after the game, Gyan said the team will return home to prepare for the next Afcon qualifiers.

“We’re out, we’re sad, we’ve to go home and see what went wrong. We’ve got young players, hungry players… they’ve to go to their clubs, if they’re down here they will be mentally down in their clubs and we’ve to just psyche them up and they’ve to go to their clubs to prove that they can deliver and we will prepare for the qualifiers again.”

Asked if Egypt 2019 was his last Afcon, Gyan said: “Yes, it could be my last”, adding: “Many things happened but I have to go home and think about it well and then see what happens. This is my seventh Africa Cup of Nations, so, I’ll just have to go home and think about it well before I come out to say anything.”

Gyan has scored in six Afcon tournaments, a record currently held by him alongside Cameroonian legend Samuel Eto’o and Zambian Kalusha Bwalya.

Gyan is the all-time leading goal scorer of the Ghana national team, with 51 goals.
