RC Lens midfielder, Salis Abdul Samed, says he will gladly accept an opportunity to wear the national colours and represent Ghana at the highest level.
Salis, who recently signed for the French Ligue 1 side for five years, has hit a rich vein of form, playing full throttle and averaging 72 touches in all eight games so far this season.
His performances have got many football fans clamouring for his inclusion in the Stars’ 2022 World Cup squad, as it stands out among Ghanaian players in similar positions.
The Black Stars technical team have had him on their radar for months too, but head coach Otto Addo is rumoured to have explained that Salis rejected an opportunity to be on his reserve list.
Contrary to the rumoured explanation making the rounds, the 22-year-old has told JoySports in an exclusive interview that playing for the national team would be a dream come true.
“I will go, if I don’t have any issues, like at the moment. Hundred times. I won’t even think twice about it. It is my dream to play for the national team,” Salis Samed told Joy Sports
“I want to play for Ghana. I want to make my mom proud. What will be more beautiful than when my mother switches on the television and I’m playing for Ghana? What will be more beautiful than my relatives watching me on TV play for Ghana? It is everyone’s dream to play at the World Cup. Some countries are angry because they’ve not qualified for the World Cup.”

“A big player like [Erling] Haaland is not going to the World Cup. If I’m going to the World Cup, why won’t I be happy? I’ll be very, very happy. It will even give my career a huge boost. If it is Ghana and not even the World Cup I’m invited for, I’ll honour the call-up if I’m okay and have no problem,” he explained to JoySports
He has played 90 minutes in all of RC Lens’ eight Ligue 1 games this season and gone ahead to score his first goal for the side against FC Lorient.
Salis Samed, who was born in Ghana, is yet to represent the West African nation at any level.

The quotes from the 🇬🇭 Salis Abdul Samed interview with @addojunr posted earlier don't do it justice. The video does.
Anyone who grew up in the hoods will identify with his straight-talking style, compete with mannerisms.

Salis Abdul Samed has 94% successful pass rate, the best ratio for a player in the French league un outside PSG and more than 200 attempted passes. It’s time to resolve any issue with Salis and give him a call up esp with Partey’s Injury woes. pic.twitter.com/Us2FkDkHAG

If we would be sticking to a back 3, serious back ups will be needed in the defensive midfield role. Elisha and Edmund Addo have shown glimpses but Salis Abdul Samed is another consistent performer in the Ligue 1
