Black Stars striker Asamoah Gyan has reacted to Ghanaians who are trolling him today for his penalty miss 10 years ago. Exactly 10 years ago, on 2 July 2010, Ghana’s Asamoah Gyan missed a penalty in the dying seconds of extra time against Uruguay denying Ghana a chance to become the first African team to reach the World Cup semi-finals which broke hearts across the continent.
The Black Stars were hoping to reach the semifinals of the tournament for the time in their history. It would have been the first as well for the continent of Africa but it never happened.
Since today marks a decade after that unfortunate event, a lot of Ghanaians have taken to social media to remind him of the incident, with most of them sharing a throwback video of the event.
