Mohammed Salisu Agrees To Play In Ghana Vrs Nigeria Play-Off - Uncle Reveals

The Black Stars are set for a crucial play-off game against West African rivals Nigeria, as both teams aim to qualify for the tournament in Qatar.

Having suffered a disappointing group-stage exit at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, the Ghana FA is on the lookout to beef the squad with the best talents available.

So far all attempts to get Salisu to play for the Black Stars have proved futile, with the center-back rejecting a call-up to feature at the AFCON in Cameroon.

Speaking on the subject, the player’s uncle said he has informed the family of his decision to finally play for the national team.

“He will be playing for Ghana soon. He has assured us that he will play in the World Cup qualifiers,” Yakubu Ahmed told Kumasi-based Sikka FM, as quoted by Ghanaweb.

“He cleared the air about his absence in the AFCON but assured of availability for the World Cup qualifiers.”

This comes after football administrator Alhaji Karim Grunsah disclosed that Salisu asked him to “stay away” when he tried to convince the defender to play for Ghana.

According to the King Faisal FC owner, he was tasked by the Black Stars management committee chairman to persuade the center-back but his attempts failed.

Salisu is currently one of the best young players in Europe, having made an impressive start to the season at Southampton.

He has taken the Premier League by storm after starring in matches against Manchester United, Arsenal and recently Manchester City.

‘I Want To Play Another World Cup’ – Asamoah Gyan

Asamoah Gyan

Ghana legend Asamoah Gyan has said he wishes to feature at the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

Gyan hasn’t played for the Black Stars since the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) and has been blighted by injuries.

The 36-year-old returned to the Ghana Premier League last season after signing for Legon Cities, but rarely played before parting ways with the club after just a year.

Currently promoting his autobiography, titled ‘Legyandary: the story of Asamoah Gyan’, the veteran striker said every player would love to play at the World Cup.

He, however, explained that he is currently not fit enough to play at the highest level, which all but rules out his chances of playing in the tournament.

“Who doesn’t want to play at the World Cup? Every player wants to play at the World Cup,” he said on Citi TV, as quoted by Ghanaweb.

“Yes, I have tasted the World Cup three times and though I would love to play at this year’s World Cup, as I have always said, I am currently not fit enough to play active football but when I Start playing – who knows?”

The former Sunderland and Al Ain forward further revealed that he will be in Qatar for the World Cup as a pundit.

The Black Stars booked their place at the quadrennial tournament on away goals following a 1-1 aggregate score against West African rivals Nigeria in March.
“I shall surely be in Qatar but maybe a pundit or let’s see,” Gyan added.

The striker’s book launch will come off on Saturday, April 30, 2022, at the plush Kempinski Gold Coast Hotel in Accra.

Will Callum Hudson-Odoi Play For Ghana In the World Cup?

Callum Hudson-Odoi

Information reaching GhArticles.com from GOAL.com can reveals that Callum Hudson-Odoi is contemplating switching from England to Ghana.

On March 29, Ghana defeated Nigeria in two legs to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

The 21-year-old hasn’t played for Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions in almost two years, and he’s rejected down recent Under-21 call-ups.

Despite winning three caps for England, Hudson-Odoi is still free to switch nationalities.

This follows a FIFA rule change in September 2020 that allowed players with three or less caps to move once they turned 21.

The dual nationality of Hudson-Odoi comes from his father Bismark, who played football for Hearts of Oak in Ghana.

Hudson-Odoi has been to Ghana on vacation recently, in January 2022 and last summer.

When asked whether he was considering switching, he answered, “We will wait till that moment comes.”

Hudson-Odoi has reportedly met with President Nana Akufo-Addo and the Ghana Football Association.
