RC Lens midfielder, Salis Abdul Samed, says he will gladly accept an chance to wear the national colours and symbolize Ghana at the best level.

Salis, who these days signed for the French Ligue 1 side for five years, has hit a prosperous vein of form, taking part in full throttle and averaging seventy two touches in all eight games so a long way this season.

His performances have obtained many soccer fans clamouring for his inclusion in the Stars’ 2022 World Cup squad, as it stands out among Ghanaian players in similar positions.

The Black Stars technical team have had him on their radar for months too, however head train Otto Addo is rumoured to have explained that Salis rejected an opportunity to be on his reserve list.

Contrary to the rumoured rationalization making the rounds, the 22-year-old has instructed JoySports in an unique interview that taking part in for the countrywide crew would be a dream come true.

“I will go, if I don’t have any issues, like at the moment. Hundred times. I won’t even think twice about it. It is my dream to play for the countrywide team,” he stated from his base in France.

“I want to play for Ghana. I choose to make my mom proud. What will be greater lovely than when my mom switches on the television and I’m enjoying for Ghana? What will be extra lovely than my loved ones observing me on TV play for Ghana? It is everyone’s dream to play at the World Cup. Some countries are indignant due to the fact they’ve no longer certified for the World Cup.”

“It is not that I didn’t want to come. I’ve e been at Clermont for two good years without playing. I’m now playing and at that time, I had a knee problem — my knee was paining me a little bit.”

“Maybe the coach didn’t understand me well, that’s why he took offence. I wanted to go and treat my knee and wait for the second round of the season.”

In touch with current Black Stars

While the wait is still on to make his mother proud with a Ghana cap, Salis is already keeping in touch with some members of the Black Stars.

He revealed he has been chatting with fellow Ligue 1 mates, Alexander Djiku and Alidu Seidu (his former teammate at Clermont Foot), about happenings in camp.

“Alidu Seidu called me in the evening and I asked how training and stuff was. He said, ‘yeah, it wasn’t bad’. I even talk to Djiku, he texted me and was like, ‘come to Black Stars’”

Like many Ghana fans, Salis watched last Friday’s 3-0 defeat to Brazil was tough but has no doubt the team has the players to be successful.

“I watched the game. It was a little bit difficult for us. I think if we play together, we can win games because we have the players. We have the players who can do something; who can help us.”
