Ghana and Nac Breda striker Mathew Amoah says he is always ready to play for the Black Star 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 where he only made two substitute appearances.

The prolific goal poacher twice failed to play 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, Mathew 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 a very eventful career in Holland first playing for Vitesse Anaheim before moving to German side Borussia Dortmund, says he is not ruling out a possible move from Nac Breda.

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

“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 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 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, scoring five times in the Black Stars’ march to a second successive tournament.
