Appiah has retired from the game while Gyan is yet to hang up his boots, despite being inactive for the past two years.

His last game for the Black Stars was at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, when Ghana lost to Tunisia in a penalty shootout.

He remains a legendary figure in African football, holding the record for the most goals by a player from the continent at the World Cup.

Earlier, Sports Brief reported on award-winning Ghanaian musician, Stonebwoy expressing gratitude to Gyan for paying his surgery bills seven years ago.

The reggae-dancehall superstar revealed that the former Ghana captain came through for him at the lowest point of his life.

Stonebwoy, known in real life as Livingstone Etse Satekla, had lost his mother five months earlier before he took ill.

Gyan ranks Weah above Ronaldo

Legendary Ghanaian forward, Gyan believes former Liberia striker, George Weah is ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo on the list of all-time greats.

In recent times, the debate on the best player of all-time has been between the Portuguese ace and his long-time rival, Lionel Messi.

However, the Argentine captain's success at the World Cup has seen the argument instead shift Pele and Diego Maradona.
