Aalesund star Edwin Gyasi lapping up debut Ghana goal

Norway-based Edwin Gyasi is on cloud nine to have scored his first international goal in Ghana’s 1-1 draw with Egypt on Sunday in a dead-rubber final 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier.

The Aalesund ace struck from just outside the box to draw Ghana level on 64 minutes, three minutes after Mahmoud Shikabala had given the Pharaohs the lead.

Gyasi was making his second appearance for the senior national team after debuting in September’s 5-1 win at Congo.

The 26-year-old says it is an feeling to have scored his first goal for the Black Stars.

”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,” Gyasi said in a post-match interview.

”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 alll the time and then I will know that I reached my level.”
