Former Ghana international Nii Odartey Lamptey, has added his voice to Asamoah Gyan’s calls on coach Otto Addo to add him to his 24-man squad for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
A lot of Ghanaians and football pundits believe that the former has come of age and should not be called to the team, whilst a few believe that he can perform better than any of the current Black Stars strikers and, therefore, should be given the nod.
However, Odartey Lamptey says, “Baby Jet Asamoah Gyan’s call up depends solely on the hands of Black Stars coach, Otto Addo.
According to him, Asamoah Gyan has done a lot for the country, so if the coach thinks he needs him, he has no problem with that, because it’s only Otto Addo who can take the final decision.
“Asamoah Gyan has done a lot for the nation, so if the Black Stars coach Otto Addo feels he needs him, why not?” he quizzed.
Ghana will begin their World Cup campaign against Portugal on 24th November before they battle South Korea four days later.
The Black Stars’ last group H game will be agaimst old foes Uruguay on 2nd December, 2022.
