Ghana struck early in the first leg of their World Cup qualifying playoff against Egypt, with Asamoah Gyan producing an emphatic finish to put them ahead.

Gyan was one of the stars of Ghana's run to the quarterfinals at the 2010 World Cup, where his team lost on penalties after Gyan himself missed a late spot-kick and the chance to take them into the last four.
