Andre Ayew, the captain of Ghana, will be attending his third World Cup in Qatar, which began on November 20, 2022.
One of the two players out of the 26 who coach Otto Addo called up and participated at the world championship is the 32-year-old.
Andre Ayew will play in his third World Cup after appearing in the 2010 and 2014 tournaments.
Speaking at his pre-match press conference ahead of Portugal game on Thursday, Andre Ayew said “Every tournament is different and every tournament has its own excitement. The World Cup is the one that we always dream to play as young kids so for me it’s unbelievable for me to be here to play a third World Cup.”
“But most important is to be able to perform on the pitch individually and collectively.”
Since joining Ghana’s full international team in 2008, Ayew has amassed more than 100 caps.
He played a key role for and served as captain of the under-20 squad that won the 2009 FIFA U-20 World Cup and the 2009 African Youth Championship.
He has participated in seven Africa Cup of Nations (2008, 2010, 2012, 2015, 2017, 2019 and 2021). In 2010 and 2015, he helped them finish as runners-up, and in the latter tournament, he scored the most goals.
