Ghana legend Asamoah Gyan wants to play at 2022 FIFA World Cup before retirement

Ghana legend Asamoah Gyan has made himself available for the Black Stars ahead of the FIFA World Cup.

The 36-year-old wants to give a last shot at the World Cup before announcing his retirement.

Gyan, currently unattached has already played at three FIFA World Cups but is aiming to make a fourth appearance.

“Anything can happen, it had happened before, talk about Cameroon in 1994 or something with Roger Millar coming back from retirement to play at the World Cup but I haven’t retired yet,” he was speaking to the BBC.

“I haven’t announced my retirement. I have been out for almost two years now due to injuries. I just need to get my body back in shape.

“I have started training and I need to get back in shape and see how my body reacts to playing competitive football.

“Talent wise everything is there already but I have to prepare physically and see what happens.

“Honestly I haven’t spoken to anybody yet, it’s part of the plan but as I said I first have to see how my body reacts.

“Me and my manager have been talking behind the scene. We just have to make sure we know what we are doing. Everything is in progress and everything looks positive. There might be a surprise.”

The former Sunderland man remains Africa’s record scorer at the World Cup with 6 goals to his credit.
