Ghana Football Association president Kwesi Nyantakyi has hailed Asamoah Gyan for rescinding his retirement decision.
The Al Ain striker confirmed his return to international football on Wednesday after a five-month indefinite break from the Black Stars.
Gyan suffered a torrent of abuse from some fans but has now decided to return to boost the four-time African champions.
His availability will boost Ghanaâ€™s 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualification chances after drawing Malawi.
â€śThe GFA wants to thank Asamoah Gyan for taking this decision and this shows once again that he is fully committed to his country,â€ť Nyantakyi said.
â€śWe thank his family and friends who also helped to encourage him in his difficult times.
â€śI want to use this opportunity to plead with our fans to support our players in their difficult times rather than condemning them.
â€śThese players have brought good times for the country in the past and when things go wrong letâ€™s encourage them to bring out the best in them.â€ť
The Black Stars will host the Flames in the first leg between the weekend of September 7-9.
