BBC Sport - Africa Cup of Nations: Asamoah Gyan steps down from penalties

Gyan steps down from penalty role

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".
