Ayew discovered the again of the net in the Black Stars’ 2-3 defeat to Portugal of their Group H opener before being taken off prior to the restart with Jordan Ayew taking his place.
Ayew was on the finish of a Mohammed Kudus move to equalise after Cristiano Ronaldo’s goal from the spot before goals from Joao Felix, Rafael Leao and Osman Bukari made positive the game ended 3-2.
Speaking as a pundit on Supersport, Gyan described Ayew as a big game player contemplating his goalscoring statistics for the national staff.
“I think he is the man for the big occasions. 24 goals and he’s not even a centre-forward, I think that is impressive,” he said.
With the goal against Portugal, the Al-Sadd forward has now scored three goals for Ghana at the World Cup and would look to add to his tally when Ghana play South Korea and Uruguay of their subsequent games.
