For the upcoming FIFA World Cup just around the corner, former Ghana Blacks Stars captain Asamoah Gyan is eyeing a prominent return to the national team. Here are his words during an interview with BBC World Service Sports.

Asamoah Gyan first indicated that he is not the only African star to make such a decision. He referred to Cameroon football legend Roger Milla who also made a similar decision in 1994 after his retirement.

“But I haven’t retired . I haven’t announced my retirement. I have been out for almost two years, due to injuries, due to my body. I just need to get my body back in shape. So, I have started training of course”, the striker added.

According to the former Legon City player, the Ghanaians would love to get their revenge on Uruguay after the controversial quarter-final at the 2010 World Cup.
