Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan did not only aid Al Ain to the top of the UAE top flight but became the league’s joint top scorer in their 2-0 win over Al Ahli on Tuesday night.
The 26-year-old registered his seventh goal of the campaign with a wonderful acrobatic goal in the 20th minute to get Al Ain off on the right foot.
He managed it by running onto a long pass from the back, hurdling Yousuf Abdullah, the Ahli goalkeeper, who was charging off his line, and Gyan somehow managed to keep his balance, banging
Gyan has now tied Richardo Oliveira who plays for second-placed Al Jazira. Al Ain doubled their lead in the 46th minute when Argentine Ignacio Scocco took another pass from the back and went in alone on Abdullah, who had no chance, to slot it home.
The Boss returned to the top of the domestic table for the first time in years. Al Ain as the only unbeaten side in the league, with a record of five victories and two draws in seven games.
