Andre Ayew, the captain of Ghana’s Black Stars, says he wants to help the next generation triumph at the 2022 World Cup.
After attending two FIFA World Cup competitions in 2010 and 2014, the former Swansea City AFC deputy captain believes he has gained a lot of knowledge and is prepared to share it with the nation’s up-and-coming stars.
Andre Ayew claims that despite missing out on the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, he is still physically and mentally capable of competing at the highest level. He considers it an honor to have guided his nation to qualification for the next 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
“I’ve grown up and played alongside different generations, over two World Cups. I’ve learned a lot from them, and I still feel fit and strong enough to play at this level. I had the honour of leading my country to qualification.”
“It was a great experience, but the focus now has to be on helping the youngsters and convincing them that we can progress, for ourselves as a team as well as for the country. I enjoy every moment,” he told FIFA Plus.
On November 24 at Stadium 974 in Doha, Ghana will open their 2022 FIFA World Cup campaign against Portugal, a formidable opponent from Europe.
The Black Stars are back in action four days later as they take on Asian superpower South Korea at Al Rayyan’s Education City Stadium.
At Al Janoub Stadium in Al Wakrah, the Black Stars, who are making their fourth FIFA appearance, will play Uruguay to close off their group stage schedule.
