Andre Ayew has reaffirmed his commitment to Ghana by revealing his excitement at his imminent return to the national set-up.
The 23-year-old called off his interim retirement from the Black Stars on Tuesday after meeting with president John Mahama at the Flagstaff House in Accra.
Ayew, who played in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, has featured in only one qualifying game for Brazil 2014, but he insists he is ready to give his all to help his side reach the finals next summer.
“Any Ghanaian player who wears that national jersey gives his best for the country, so I think there are no conditions, we just try to give our best for the nation and I am happy to be back,” the Olympique de Marseille star told Goal.
“All that I am hoping to do is to complement the efforts of my team-mates and help the team to qualify for next year’s World Cup.”
Ghana are pushing for an historic third World Cup appearance, but currently trail Zambia in Group D going into Sunday’s penultimate match against Lesotho.
