Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan won his seventh title in the United Arab Emirates on Saturday as Al Ahli defeated Al Shabab 2-0 in the final of the Gulf League Cup at the Rashid Al-Maktoum Stadium.

Gyan was sent on as a 72nd minute substitute to shore up the attack with Al Ahli leading by the lone goal. He missed an opportunity to double the lead before Diop put the game beyond their rivals.

Ghanaian Nana Poku played for Shabab.

The League Cup victory is consolation for Al Ahli who are on the verge of surrendering their league title to Al Jazira.
