Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan was mobbed by enthusiastic South Africans fans during an international friendly between the two nations on Tuesday.
The Black Stars were held to a pulsating 1-1 draw in Durban with Ayanda Patosi equalizing Mubarak Wakaso’s first half opener through the spot kick.
Gyan, who enjoyed just eight minutes of action in the second half, was the toast of the fans at the Moses Mabhida Sports Stadium.
The Al Ahli striker is a cult hero in South Africa after he scored three goals during the 2010 World Cup in that nation.
He broke the heart of millions when he missed a last minute penalty against Uruguay in the quarter-finals.
