Former Black Stars striker, Asamoah Gyan, has revealed that he trained hard behind the scenes hoping to make Ghana’s squad for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Gyan has been out of the national team after the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations [AFCON] in Egypt but hinted that he is aiming to return to the team ahead of the Mundial during an interview with the BBC.
However, Otto Addo did not include the 38-year-old in his squad for the tournament.
Speaking in an interview, the former Sunderland and Liberty Professionals striker disclosed that he would have given his best if he was part of Ghana’s World Cup squad in Qatar.
“That World Cup time, I was working behind the scene. I felt if I was invited I would have considered it because I was training hard because I wanted to come back to the field. But it’s all part of life,” Gyan told Dan Kwaku Yeboah TV.
“So far as I haven’t retired from football, I can still play,” he added.
Asamoah Gyan is Ghana’s all-time top scorer in the national team and also Africa’s top scorer at the World Cup.
He was part of Ghana’s squad that played at the 2006, 2010 and 2014 World Cups in Germany, South Africa and Brazil respectively.
