I’m ready for the Black Stars - Ghana’s Mathew Amoah

The Netherlands-based marksman has also not ruled out a possible move from the Pearl of the South with two more years left on his contract
Ghana striker Mathew Amoah has stated he is always ready to play for the Black Stars, despite having last featured for the national team about a year ago.

The 30-year-old has not played for the national team since the 2010 World Cup in South Africa where he only made two substitute appearances.

The prolific goal poacher twice failed to make the squad for African Nations Cup qualifiers due largely to injuries, but he is yet to be given a call-up under new coach Goran Stevanovic.

Speaking on E-TV’s 'Sports Live', Amoah stressed that he is looking forward to a comeback to the national team nonetheless.

“I’m always ready. But this question has to go to the coach because he is the right person to answer this question,” he said. “I’m still playing football so I haven’t stopped.”
 
The veteran of two World Cups in 2006 and 2010 added that, “If I get the chance to play, I will play and if not I will play at my club in Holland and do what I can do.”

Amoah, who has had an eventful career in the Netherlands first playing for Vitesse Anaheim before moving to German side Borussia Dortmund, mentioned he is not ruling out a possible move from the Yellow Army.

“In football you never know. I can’t tell you, but we will see what God will do for me.

“Yes, I have a two-year contract with them. I signed for three years and I have played one, remaining two.

“I think if I go back I will play for Nac Breda and if something is coming in, right now I don’t know,” Amoah added.

Amoah played an important role in Ghana's first ever qualification for the World Cup in 2006, scoring three goals in three consecutive qualifying matches. He also finished as Ghana’s leading scorer in the 2010 World Cup qualifiers, scoring five times in the Black Stars’ march to a second successive tournament.
