Laryea Kingston remains one of the finest exports in the history of Ghana football. The former Ghanaian soccer star represented the Black Stars from 2002-2010 and made 41 appearances. He scored six goals for the national team. Laryea has enjoyed quite some successes having played on bigger football stages in Europe and the United States.

Besides all these, the former Ghanaian international believes his successes in football is incomplete after failing to represent his country in the 2006 World cup, having played in the qualifiers. According to Laryea, the failure to play in the World cup comes hunting him.  Speaking on Joy FM’s sports edition, Laryea, in answer to a question if he is satisfied with his achievements in football acknowledged that he is happy his inability to represent his country at the 2006 World cup remains the only shortfall of his career.

The former Black stars right-winger was a vital member of the Black Stars team that qualified the country to its historic appearance at the World cup in 2006. All had gone well for Laryea until an incidence encountered with Habib Bei of Senegal in a qualifier resulted in the former football sensation receiving a four-match ban. Serbian trainer, Ratomir Dujkovic, excluded Laryea from his World cup team list. It’s been several years down the lane, but the former Ghanaian international still holds on to the pain of his inability to represent his country at the World cup level.
