Ghanaian striker, Asamoah Gyan, has revealed that he is training and is hopeful to get fit for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Gyan has been out of action for the Black Stars since the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations and has not played competitive football since his contract with betPawa GPL side Legon Cities expired in 2021.
But, he believes that his talent is still there and with some training, he will be ready to represent Ghana in the global showcase.
“Anything can happen. You know it’s happened before. I’m talking about Cameroon in 1994 with Roger Milla you know coming back from retirement to play in the World Cup. I haven’t retired yet. I haven’t announced my retirement. You know I’ve been out for almost two years now due to injuries, due to my body,” he told BBC.
“I just need to get my body back in shape. So I’ve started training of course so I need to get back in shape and see how my body reacts to playing competitive football. Talent wise, I reckon it’s there already so I just have to prepare physically and then we’ll see what happens.”
The 36-year-old is currently Africa’s record goalscorer in the World Cup with six goals to his name.
