Dancing striker Asamoah Gyan has explained what accounted for his failure to live up to his trade-mark dance after scoring against Mali in the 28th African Cup of Nations in Gabon last Saturday.

The striker, who returned from injury recently, fired home Ghana’s opener with a brilliant strike from a free-kick.

But the striker, who is noted for crowning his scorings with dancing, went easy and waited for his colleagues at their opponents’ corner: And after they mopped him, he raised his hands in the air to acknowledge cheers from the fans.

“I have realised that most of my colleagues are not good dancers. They find it difficult to do the kind of dance I do, especially our captain, John,” he said jokingly, in a press conference on Saturday at the team’s residence.

On his current form, as against his razor-sharp form in Angola two years ago, he stated, “When every country is playing Ghana, they prepare well; they know what I am capable of doing, so they don’t give me much room to operate. And that shows the calibre of player I am.”

Gyan scored four goals in the Angola championship but has bagged just a goal from two games in the current championship.
