BBC Sport - Africa Cup of Nations: Asamoah Gyan steps down from penalties
Gyan steps down from penalty role
- From the section Football
Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan admits that he is no longer prepared to take penalties for the national team after a number of high-profile misses.
The former Sunderland striker missed a spot-kick that would have put Ghana in the semi-finals of World Cup 2010 and again in the semi-finals of last year's Cup of Nations.
Gyan says ending Ghana's 31-year wait for the trophy would make him "the happiest man in the world".
