Amsterdam born Ghanaian winger, Edwin Gyasi has expressed his delight for netting his first international goal for his motherland – Ghana.

The Aelesund FK attacking midfielder pulled parity for the Black Stars in their last World Cup qualifying match against the Pharaohs of Egypt at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium on Sunday, November 12, 2017.

“It feels great. When I scored, I saw my family jubilating and all the crowd. It was really amazing,” the Netherlands born Ghanaian noted.

The 26-year-old Edwin Gyasi who has played for De Graafschap, FC Twente, Roda JC, and Heracles Almelo made his debut Black Stars appearance in Ghana’s 5-1 win over Congo on September 05.

According to the former Telstar prodigy [Gyasi] the players had the desire to win but it was rather unfortunate that the victory didn’t come.

“I think we wanted to win the match especially when playing at home, but 1-1 is better than losing the game,” he said.

“I’m not happy, you can always be better but I’m happy that I scored my first international goal,” he adds.

Edwin Gyasi however congratulated Egypt for picking the qualification slot in group E.

“I think they [Egypt] worked hard for it and deserves to be there. If you look at Ghana, Ghana is a team that deserves to be at the World Cup always.”
