“I am getting better. In my last match (for Al-Ahli), I scored twice and played for 90 minutes. I am still not hundred percent though but I am getting there.

My body feels good and I am working on my endurance so I do not get tired quickly.I am working with my colleagues and everyone will support me to do what I do best.

We are all praying for victory on Friday.”Gyan has scored four goals for Al-Ahli in all competitions and he is expected to help Ghana start the World Cup qualifiers on a good note.
