Richard Kingson deserves Ghana's World Cup call - Laryea Kingston

The former Hearts of Midlothian midfielder says his senior brother Richard Kingson should be included in Ghana’s World Cup team

Former Ghana midfielder Laryea Kingston has said his senior brother Richard Kingson deserves to be at Brazil 2014 with the Black Stars.

Kingson, the longest serving Black Stars goalkeeper lost his place since the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.

Ahead of the naming of Ghana’s provisional 30-man squad on Monday, Kingston thinks his sibling who recently qualified Balikesirspor to the Turkish top-flight brings a lot to the team.

“I am not saying this because he is my brother, but I think he deserves a call-up," he told GTV's Stage Africa.

“He is an experienced goalkeeper and you need such people at the very big stages. Experience cannot be bought anywhere."

The shot-stopper made his Black Stars debut in 1996, and can boast of 90 caps with one goal to his credit.
