According to the player, his decision to retire is a plot to save the Ghana National team from further mayhem at the 2019 AFCON. 

He said, “I also wish to retire from the national team permanently not pretending my presence would not fuel the purported undermining the country as seen under my captaincy.”

Gyan added, “I would continue to serve the country Ghana in other endeavours as a businessman through various investments.”

With 6 goals, he is the top African goalscorer in the history of the World Cup.
