Goalkeeper Richard Kingson remains optimistic of his chances of making the Ghana squad for the 2014 World Cup despite his lack of international call ups for recent games.

The experienced goalkeeper has not been called up for Black Stars duty since the first leg World Cup playoff win over Egypt back in October.

Kingson has however hit a rich vein of form, keeping three consecutive clean sheets for Balikesirspor – resulting to being voted into the team of the week in the Turkish second tier league.

The former Birmingham City, Wigan and Blackpool goalkeeper says he is ever ready to return to national team duty once the opportunity avails itself.

“If the whole league has been able to vote me as the best goalkeeper for a period then it shows that I am doing well,” he told Montie FM.

“I always say that I live to play, I don’t play to live so I am ever ready for any challenge.”

Kingson has played 90 times for the Black Stars spanning an almost two decade period.

    No way!!! We dont need any old man in the current black stars team… Lets give the younger once chance, especially kwarasey

  2. lion-fire says:

    With the absence of John mensah, we need a leader in the back who can command the defense. Kungson fits that role better than the other keepers

    • JNR says:

      With all due respect, don’t talk rubbish. Any keeper can command a defence, as long as they are good keepers. John Mensah wasn’t quite good at commanding the defence when we ended up conceding silly goals, yes they are leaders off the field but not on it.

      Just because Olele kept 3 consecutive clean sheets and was in the team for the WEEK doesn’t mean he deserves a call up, damn.

    well said lion-fire…

    Seriously, what’s wrong with this great keeper? What’s wrong with olele? Am greatly ashamed by his rhetorics and he has given himself away as an inferior person and am damn serious about it!! They say too much of everything is bad and for,olele is dreaming too much and he has to wakeup to realities!! My simple question to olele is this, does he want to remain a goalkeeper for life till his son grow up to compete for positions with him in the bs? To be frank olele, I personally admired your determination and resilience as an individual, but please gave a lil respect for yourself and the wonderful great works u have done for mother Ghana!! Please learn to encourage the young ones to be like u and stop always looking for yourself!! U are a legend in Ghana and a senior patriot and is about time u should plan of learning football mgt because your services ll be needed at a point in time not as a goalkeeper but rather in other capacity!!
