Ghana goalkeeper Richard Kingson says he’s in a good physical condition ahead of Tuesday’s World Cup playoffs against Egypt on October 15.
The Doxa Katokopias shot-stopper return to the Black Stars generated intense debate in the West African country after a two-year absence.
Ex-Ghana FA boss Dr Nyaho Tamakloe, criticized the decision to recall him by claiming he has lost his reflexes and agility due to his age.
But the former Blackpool last line of defense has rubbished such claims and says he is in top shape.
“I am in good shape. I have not my reflexes as other would want other to believe.” Kingson said
“I am coming to compete.I have always trained hard.I believe in training and not age.
“When I was club less I trained everyday. I can even be better than most people and I pray that I get the chance so that people will bite their finger.
“This goalkeeping is something that God gave me and I believe that I know how to do it better than anything in this world.
“I did not asked to be called by the coach.Goalkeeping is my job and I have been asked to come and do that. I must serve my nation. If I get to start God will not put me and the country to shame because I do this (goalkeeping) better than most. If I do not get to start to it’s alright.
The veteran must now fight for a starting role against Fatau Dauda and Adam Kwarasey in Tuesday’s crunch tie against the North African giants.
