Baby Jet has been rewarded for an outstanding World Cup with an award he recieved this week in Nigeria.

Asamoah Gyan scooped another award last night to add to his BBC African Footballer Of The Year he recieved back in November 2010.

The Ghanaian striker was back in Africa this week to attend the 2010 AIT Football Awards in Port-Harcourt, Nigeria, where his rewards for an outstanding World Cup 2010 in South Africa were rewarded.

Gyan scooped the 'Most Outstanding Player at the 2010 World Cup' and you can hardly argue with it. Gyan was fantastic in the tournament hitting 3 goals and leading his Ghana team to within a whisker of the World Cup Semi-Final.

The AIT Football Awards are a relatively new awards ceremony, having only had one previous outing, but never the less, an award is an award, and if someone from a neighbouring country wanted to give me something akin to 'Best Whatever On The World Stage' I'd be delighted, and I'm sure Gyan is about this.

Having caught the eye of many a fan and pundit during that time, we can feel lucky that we were the team Gyan chose having had no doubt a plethora of interest from around Europe.

Gyan has continued the great form shown in South Africa in the red and white shirt, and long may it continue! Well done Asamoah from everyone here at The Roker Report.
