Gyan's Classic Goal Seals Win

Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan returned from injury to score for Rennes as they thrashed Montpellier 3-0 in the French top-flight on Saturday night. The Black Stars forward missed last week's league game because of a thigh sprain he suffered while serving his country in a World Cup qualifier. But he returned from that injury and showed why Rennes paid lots of money for him and was even involved in the opening goal. Rennes made the break ten minutes before the interval after a mini-spell of pressure, Sylvain Marveaux finishing neatly from a Jerome Leroy pass. The same player would supply an inadvertent assist for Moussa Sow�s goal early in the second half, drilling a wayward shot across the face of goal for the striker to turn home. This strike rather took the life out the game as Rennes were rarely tested after that moment. However, stoppage time would bring with it a terrific strike from Asamoah Gyan.The game appeared dead, but Gyan decided to give the supporters something to remember. He sent a terrific angled shot into the very top corner of the net - a blockbuster finish to a very satisfactory performance from the hosts.
