The all time top-scorer of the Ghana Black Stars, ‘Baby Jet’ Asamoah Gyan has confirmed his desire to return into the senior national soccer team for the World Cup in Qatar this year.
The African leading top-scorer in the history of the World Cup has been absent from the Black Stars after the 2019 AFCON.
The living legend feels not to end up with the national team in such ways but he is expecting to get back on track and make history for Ghana.
Currently, Gyan is without a club team but his desire to return into the senior national soccer team, the Black Stars is pushing him to look for a new contract and play a competitive football to regain form.
Speaking to Kwame Sefe Kayi on Peace FM, the veteran attacker expressed his readiness for Black Stars call-up.
“For now that I haven’t retired, I have to earn a call-up but I have to join a club to play and be fit so that I can earn the call-up. It is possible and it has happened before like Roger Milla. It will depend on me but physically I’m not ready unless I find a club team to play a competitive football so that I can be fit.” Gyan stated.
Gyan has played 109 games for Ghana with 51 goals, making him the all time top-scorer of the national team.
An international exile lasting over a year was ended in October 2018 when Gyan was called up to the Ghanaian squad for a pair of 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualification matches versus Sierra Leone.
He announced his retirement from international football on 20 May 2019, a month to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations. However, a day later Gyan reversed his decision following a discussion with the president of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
