#2:. The 2010 heartbreak
Gyan missed a penalty at the 2006 world cup in Germany against Czech Republic but that miss was not met with flak since his name was still on the score sheet while Ghana went ahead to win the match.
However, in 2010 he move from hero to villain as he missed a crucial penalty against Uruguay in the quarter finals of the FIFA World Cup hosted in South Africa, where had he scored, the Black Stars would have made history as the first African country to reach the semi-finals of the prestigious tournament.
Eventually, Ghana lost on penalties to Uruguay.
