Gyan, who was doing his punditry job for Super Sports had teary and reddish eyes during the post-match analysis. Captain, Andre Ayew put the Black Stars in the lead against the Panthers after 28 minutes of action.
Ghana needed a win to boost their chance of qualifying as a second-place team after losing their opening game. Meanwhile, Gabon needed a draw after winning their opening game.
But a 90th minutes goal by substitute Jim Allevinah draw Gabon level and thus earned the Panthers a vital point in the Group C fixture.
Speaking after the match, Ghana’s all-time top scorer could not hide his disappointment.
“I’m upset! This (draw) is a loss to us. We (Ghana) should have won this game.” He said on Super Sports
“I’m not happy, we deserved the three points but I think we lost a bit of concentration and conceded a goal in the last minute. We cannot keep on conceding goals in the latter stages of the game,” he added.
Ghana following the draw will need a win against Comoros in their last group game and hope to qualify for the last 16 stage as one of the best third-place teams.
The Black Stars will play the debutants on Tuesday, January 18.
