Asamoah Gyan has expressed his intention to represent Ghana at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. The 36-year-old is looking forward to one farewell dance with his country before the World Cup later this year. Asamoah Gyan wants to avenge his team’s loss to Uruguay after Luis Suarez’s memorable handball in South Africa.
Asamoah Gyan is hoping for a second chance after missing a penalty against Uruguay at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. The 36-year-old has stated his intention to compete in the 2022 World Cup, which will be held in Qatar later this year.
With Ghana ready to play rivals Uruguay in group H, Gyan hopes to avenge the devastating defeat suffered 12 years ago.
“The whole world knows what happened,” Gyan told the BBC.
“When the draw was made, and they saw Uruguay in Ghana’s group [in Qatar] the only thing that came into mind was revenge. Ghanaians want revenge. “Personally, I just sat back and smiled because I understand how the game goes. What happened in 2010 is behind me [but] maybe there might be another opportunity.” Asamoah Gyan remains Ghana’s all-time leading scorer and holds the record as the African with the most goals at the World Cup.
