After scoring a sublime curling free-kick to send Ghana on their way to a 2-0 win over Mali in Gabon on Saturday, Asamoah Gyan bluntly reminded everyone how good he thinks he is.

"Everybody who plays against Ghana comes at us strong," said the former Sunderland striker. "Everybody playing against Ghana will be going against Asamoah Gyan. I've been the lone striker six years. Everybody knows. It's not my fault. This shows how great I am."

As well as referring to himself in the third person and telling reporters how great he was, Gyan called Ghana "my boys". He said: "We hope to make Ghana proud by winning each game."
