Ghana's Asamoah Gyan says that the squad at this year's Africa Cup of Nations is almost identical to the 2010 World Cup outfit in terms of spirit.

Asamoah Gyan has confessed that there are similarities between the Ghana squad that is competing at this year's Africa Cup of Nations to the one that grabbed a number of headlines at the 2010 World Cup.

Captain Gyan scored three goals as the Black Stars reached the quarter-finals of the world's biggest football tournament before they were knocked out by Uruguay.

Ahead of his country's AFCON semi-final against Burkina Faso tomorrow evening, Gyan has revealed that the spirit in the camp has reminded him of what happened three years ago.

"I am very excited to play again in the semi-finals of this great competition. We have had a good tournament so far and I am proud of what the team has achieved to this point," he told PUMA Football. "The spirit in our team is really unbelievable, the mood in the camp and the attitude of the players towards each other has really helped us perform on the pitch.

"This is the same spirit we had in South Africa three years ago during the World Cup and is the reason I love playing for my country. There is a unity I have not experienced with any other team, I truly believe it is unique."

Ghana have not won the Africa Cup of Nations since 1982.
