Hearts defender Nuru Sulley maintains it would be ‘a dream’ to play for Ghana at the World Cup finals this summer, and has not ruled out his chances of making Kwesi Appiah squad.

The 22-year-old, who impressed heavily during the 2014 Championship of African Nations (CHAN) tournament in South Africa, is holding onto a potential dream of making the World Cup squad despite his slim chances.

Sulley faces a fierce competition in the race for the final squad with John Boye, Isaac Vorsah, Jerry Akaminko and Rashid Sumaila most likely to make the squad.

However, the strong centre-back, who has established himself as one of the accomplished defenders in the Ghanaian top-flight, has not given up hope of an international future.

“It would be a dream to pull on that Ghana shirt again but this time at the World Cup, and which player would ever turn that down? he quizzed.

“I am still hoping the coach will call me. Playing for Ghana at the World Cup is the biggest dream of every player.

“There are always the possibilities. There are four or so months left and so anything at all can happen.

“To be honest with you, I am keeping that dream close to me.”
