first_imgGhana captain Asamoah Gyan has challenged his colleagues to put the disappointment of not winning the AFCON behind and look ahead to a brighter future.Ghana put up a brave fight but lost 9-8 in a dramatic penalty shootout against Ivory Cost on Sunday at the just ended Nations Cup in Equatorial Guinea.The Black Stars players were seeking to end the county’s 33-year wait for an African title but missed it narrowly.The technical team and the playing body looked dejected after the game but the skipper wants them to forget what has happened in the past and focus on the future.“Losing is part of the game but what I want to tell my colleagues is that they should be mentally strong and forget about what has happened and move back to our clubs to perform,” said Gyan“We really have to because if not it will disturb us and that is my advice to my brothers.”last_img
