Ghana Football Association president Kwesi Nyantakyi will support the decision to recall goalkeeper Richard Kingson for next month’s World Cup playoff against Egypt if he is deemed fit.
The veteran goalkeeper has returned to active football in Cyprus and played 270 minutes of football for Doxa in the country’s top-flight.
The 35-year-old earned rave reviews when he kept a clean sheet on his debut in the 2-0 win over Nea Salamis at home.
Kingson lost his national team position due to his inactivity after he was released by then English Premier League side Blackpool.
“Why was Richard (Kingson) dropped from the Black Stars? It was because he became clubless,” Nyantakyi told Accra-based Joy FM.
“If he is now playing, it means that there is every opportunity for him to comeback provided he is playing and playing well.
“For such a veteran goalkeeper, I believe if he is indeed playing well and we will get the chance to come back into the team, it will be a big boost to the team’s chances of qualifying to the World Cup.
“With Richard Kingson, you can go and sleep. If he is in good form, he is the safest pair of hands in the country.”
Kingson was between the sticks for Ghana at the FIFA World Cup finals in 2006 and 2010.
