Asamoah Gyan revealed Friday that his international level with Ghana won't be affected by his joining to United Arab Emirates' side Al-Ain, as he is hoping to bang in the goals when the league begins this weekend.

The 25-year-old striker hinted that he is concentrating on keeping his shape ahead of the 2012 African Cup of Nations in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.

"People criticised a lot but I do my thing. I understand why they would but life goes on. There will be many comments but I am focused." Gyan said.

"I have no worries at all. I play in UAE but I came back to score for Ghana in the Nations Cup qualifiers. If I relax then I will lose my form but I won't do that," he added.

 Asamoah Gyan left Sunderland, moving to the Middle East on a money-spinning season-long loan agreement, but his former team coach Steve Bruce expressed frustration at the striker's decision to join Al-Ain on a one-year loan contract.
