The striker has given the assurance that the Black Stars will not underrate any side in the ongoing continental showpiece after some shocking results

Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan is of the conviction that the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations will be full of shocks.

Following the stunning defeat of Senegal by Zambia in that 2-1 defeat and victories by co-hosts Equatorial Guinea and Gabon, the Al Ain forward has warned his team-mates to guard against complacency.

“I predicted that there would be a lot of surprises in this competition, and already we have seen some,” the on loan Sunderland marksman told the press ahead of their opening group fixture against debutants Botswana on Tuesday afternoon.

“There will be more. That is why Ghana will not underrate any team in this tournament.”

The west Africans are looking forward to annexing the trophy for the fifth time, and the first since they last won in 1982. Ghana are in Group D with Botswana, Mali and Guinea.
