The Beitar Jerusalem striker was expected to succeed Gyan as the senior national team’s next striker. Injuries, though, have limited the former Red Star Belgrade striker’s chances. For me to get to the level of Asamoah Gyan I need time – Richmond Boakye Yiadom discloses. 

After a three-year break, Boakye-Yiadom returned to the national squad in November for the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

The 28-year-old was also included to the team for his second African Cup of Nations (AFCON) after missing out on the 2013 edition in South Africa due to injury.

“I am much honored to be compared to Asamoah Gyan who has made a lot of impact in the national team. I have heard people say and I have read it. When I returned from China I sustained some injuries that slowed me down a bit.

“For me to get to the level of Asamoah Gyan, we need consistency in the national team as he did. We just don’t use one day to improve or build on something, it takes time. When you the fans give us time and we keep three or four strikers together and begin to work on them, we will be able to come close to what he did”.

“I am honored to be compared to Asamoah Gyan, I am still young and have more time to work on myself”, he stated.

We know what the 30 million people in Ghana are expecting. Our agenda is to reach the final so the Morocco match is put behind us”, he added. 

The Black Stars of Ghana will play against Gabon today at 8:00 pm Cameroon time and 7:00 pm Ghana time.
