Today in History, exactly 6 years ago, on 21 June 2014, Ghana ‘s Asamoah Gyan Became the 1st African Player to Score at 3 Different World Cups. With a 63rd minute goal during Ghana’s 2-2 draw with Germany at the 2014 World Cup, Asamoah Gyan became the first African player to score at three different World Cups.

The goal was a shocking one in the game, as Ghana took an unexpected 2-1 lead over a team many believe will win the entire tournament. Unfortunately for the Ghanaians, Germany’s Miroslav Klose netted the equalizer just eight minutes later, ending the match in a draw.

Group G of the 2014 FIFA World Cup consisted of Germany, Portugal, Ghana and United States.

Asamoah Gyan ‘s first World Cup goal was scored in a 2-0 win over the Czech Republic in the 2006 tournament in Germany. It was his only successful strike that year, but he opened up the 2010 World Cup in South Africa by netting against Serbia in a 1-0 win. He then scored in Ghana’s next match against Australia, which ended in a 1-1 draw.

Arguably, his most important goal came next, when he scored three minutes into stoppage time against the United States to propel the Black Stars into the quarterfinals, where Ghana eventually lost to Uruguay on penalties.

Ghana’s Asamoah Gyan became Africa’s all-time leading scorer in World Cup history when he equalised for Ghana during key Group G match against Portugal. It was Gyan’s sixth World Cup goal, passing the tally of legend Roger Milla.
