Asamoah Gyan isn't a man short on confidence - the Ghanaian international has netted an impressive 50 goals in 105 games for his country. And the former Sunderland striker's latest antics have provided evidence that his confidence, or maybe arrogance, literally have no boundaries.
Gyan hit the half century milestone for Ghana at the weekend when he scored during his side's 5-0 win over Ethiopia. However, the 31-year-old was slated on social media after he wore a captain's armband bearing his own face on it during the victory.

Its crazy. Why shd Gyan even customize armband in the first place. Is the captaincy his property? Lol. 50 goals and so what?— aNDerRaTeD (@Welcome_Kay) June 12, 2017
So disappointed in Asamoah Gyan. I expect more from him. Why would he customise captain's armband? Is it his property? Unnecessary! #GHAETH— Dennis Mirpuri Snr. (@DennisMirpuri) June 11, 2017

Asamoah Gyan has CUSTOMIZED his captains armband. So Andre has to go for new one instead of just changing.
To make matters worse, Gyan was subbed off during the game, which left vice-captain Andre Ayew having to go to the substitutes bench and get a new armband.
Ghana could now find themselves in trouble for breaching FIFA regulations about what should be displayed on armbands...
