Asamoah Gyan claims that the 2010 tournament was his favorite AFCON experience.

Ghana legend Asamoah Gyan has pinpointed the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations as his best AFCON moment ever.

Gyan, Ghana’s all-time leading goal scorer, reflected on his standout performance during the competition hosted in Angola.

Known colloquially in Ghana as the “one-goal project,” Gyan’s decisive strikes propelled the Black Stars through the tournament.

He netted a total of three goals, securing his place as the joint-second highest scorer of the event.

Gyan’s defining moment came in the quarterfinal clash against hosts Angola, where his lone goal clinched a 1-0 victory for Ghana.

He continued his heroics in the semifinals against Nigeria, again scoring the solitary goal that propelled Ghana to a 1-0 win and a spot in the final.

Despite his efforts, Ghana fell short in the ultimate match against Egypt, conceding a late goal in the 85th minute to lose 1-0.

The goal, scored by Egypt’s Gedo, dashed Ghana’s hopes of clinching the AFCON title.

Gyan’s declaration came in response to a call from the Confederation of African Football for past football greats to share their most cherished AFCON memories, highlighting the enduring impact of his stellar 2010 campaign.
