The Black Stars captain, Andrew Ayew claims he wants to complete his career by winning either the FIFA World Cup or the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).
After making his debut in 2008, the 32-year-old has been a member of the national squad for almost 15 years.
Ayew was a vital component of the unbeatable team that won both the U20 FIFA World Cup and the U20 AFCON championships in 2009.
Additionally, he has participated in two finals with the Black Stars (AFCON 2010 and AFCON 2015), but both times he lost.
Former Swansea City player insists that his only objective is to help Ghana win a trophy at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
“For myself, to be real, I don’t have personal targets. The only personal target I had— and still have — since I joined the Black Stars was to win a trophy with the team,” Ayew told the Graphic Sports.
“That’s my only target and I’ve been close a number of times (the 2010 AFCON and 2015 AFCON final).
“I won the Under-20 AFCON and won the Under-20 World Cup trophies, but my only target is to win a trophy in the Black Stars jersey, any trophy that I can win — AFCON or the World Cup trophy. That’s my goal, that’s my aim and that’s what I pray and work hard for every day.“
Ayew was selected to start last Friday’s international friendly between Ghana and Brazil in France. Ghana fell to Brazil 3-0.
Tuesday’s friendly match between the Black Stars and Nicaragua is anticipated to feature the Al Sadd forward once more.
