Ghana skipper Asamoah Gyan has set his sights on helping the Black Stars claim the 2019 Africa Cup of Nation to be held in Cameroon.

The Kayserispor forward insists his objective is to guide the four-time AFCON champions in their quest to end the 36-year run without a major trophy.

Ghana have been to the semifinals of the Afcon on six consecutive times since 2008, including two finals where they lost to Egypt and Cote d'Ivoire in 2010 and 2015 respectively.

"This is the time Ghanaians need to come together to achieve a common goal. My main focus as captain of the national team is to win the AFCON. It's been my dream since I joined the national team. I've been to two finals and several semifinals," Gyan told Jefferies Sintim Koree on Zylofon Sports.
