Asamoah Gyan has expressed disappointment over the display of the Black Stars in their international friendly against Nicaragua.

However, Gyan was unhappy with the lack of supply for the Black Stars forward Inaki Williams, who the ex-Sunderland striker feels was making the right runs.

Ghana beat Nicaragua to end international break with a win

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Abdul Fatawu Issahaku's first half curler earned Ghana victory against Nicaragua in their penultimate friendly before the start of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

The Sporting Lisbon winger whipped in after controlling a misplaced clearance to hand the Black Stars a win at the Estadio Francisco Artes Carrasco.

The Black Stars, after the defeat to Brazil, got off to a great start and should have broken the game's deadlock in the early minutes after Fatawu's strike deflected off a Nicaragua defender.
