Appiah’s top five choices and Gyan’s omission trigger deeper issues

Football and opinions are undisputed bedfellows but it is also true that some opinions carry more weight than others.

So when former Ghana captain Stephen Appiah quoted a tweet by Betway asking for the top five Black Stars players between 1990 to 2021, it immediately generated significant debate and conversation on social media.

The debate centered largely around the omission of Asamoah Gyan from that top five considering his achievements. The legendary striker is the Black Stars most capped player with 109 appearances and has scored a record 51 goals in a Black Stars shirt.

Even that didn’t cut it for Appiah who instead picked himself, alongside Michael Essien, Abedi Pele, Richard Kingson and Tony Yeboah.
