Asamoah Gyan is set to prove himself in the Black Stars Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Sierra Loene.
The Ghana skipper missed the Black Stars disappointing 1-0 defeat to Kenya last month.
The 32-year-old striker has returned to lead the team against Sierra Loene in clash on October 11 at the Baba Sports Stadium.
Though a section of football pundits questioned the inclusion of the former Sunderland hitman due to his lack of game at club level, Gyan insists he will do his talking on the field as he has nothing to prove to anyone.
“We cannot use talk to prove my fitness. It’s only when the game comes on that you can use it to say whether I am fit or not. You criticize not a lot of people, I don’t have anything to prove,” Gyan told reporters at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
“You are the journalist you are the one saying it. We are about 34 million population here so you are the one saying it’s not Ghanaians. So the reason why we are here is to make everyone happy and win.”
Ghana leads group F of the qualifiers after match day two despite sharing same points as the rest of the teams in the group.
