Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan has asked his teammates to take points in Wednesday's clash with Egypt in the Group D third round of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations, saying he is keen to finish with a flawless record in the group stage.

"We want to maintain our 100% record so that we can build our confidence as the tournament goes on," Gyan was quoted as saying by ghanasoccernet Monday.

"I expect a really good game against Egypt." The Ghana skipper added.

The Black Stars will not be taking it easy against Egypt, having recently lost to the Pharaohs in a 2018 World Cup qualifier. The chance to put Egypt out of the tournament is one they will be itching to capitalise on.

Ghana, who secured their place in the last eight with a narrow 1-0 victory over Mali, will face Egypt in the last round on Wednesday.

Egypt are second in the group with four points from two games, two behind leaders Ghana.
