“Gyan still has the opportunity though he is aged. Some of his age mates are still playing regularly.

“Roger Milla did the same and played well in the World Cup but the question is ” are the situations the same”?
“We want to make an impact going to the world cup so all needed necessities must be explored but like I said we must be serious with our football.”
