Asamoah Gyan Re Echoes Importance of 'Game Change' Majeed Ashimeru as Ghana Beat Madagascar
- Asamoah Gyan has praised the performance of Majeed Ashimeru
- The Anderlecht midfielder starred as Ghana beat Madagascar in Kumasi
- Ashimeru was introduced in the second half of the match
Asamoah Gyan feels vindicated after his constant request for Anderlecht star Majeed Ashimeru to be included in the Black Stars team.
The Belgium-based midfielder changed the game after coming on in the second half of the match between Ghana and Madagascar in the opening game of the World Cup qualifier in Group I.
Ashimeru started the attack, which led to the winner from Inaki Williams in the final minute in Kumasi.
Gyan took to social media to justify his continuous support for the skillful midfielder.
"Now you understand why I talk about this guy," wrote Gyan.
The former Red Bull Salzburg player earned a lot of praise on social media, with fans proclaiming him as the Man of the Match.
How fans reacted to Ashimeru's performance
Remember his name! Majeed Ashimeru
Well played, Majeed Ashimeru. He’s been everywhere since he came on. If you put in an effort, the fans will see/say it. He has done that today.
Majeed Ashimeru made a huge difference since he came on in the second half. Injected some pace, energy, intensity, got himself in good areas & involved in most of Ghana's attacking moves too. Why would you keep such a player on the bench? Should be starting games henceforth.
Majeed Ashimeru barely played football this season, stepped on the pitch and was immediately the best player. Kept the ball ticking, drove Ghana forward when there was space and his passing was excellent. It was not a cameo, it was a 45 minute midfield performance.

Ashimeru being on the fringes of this team just tells you how unserious we are....that man should be one of the first names on the team sheet
Asamoah Gyan never lie about Ashimeru, he is a real baller
