I spoke to my mother when I got the call to play at the World Cup – Salis Abdul Samed

Salis Abdul Samed has stated that he immediately spoke to his mother when he got the call he is part of the team going to Qatar for the World Cup.

The RC Lens midfielder making his debut at the Mundial was a delight to watch despite Ghana’s early exit from the tournament.

Salis’ performances in Ligue 1 earned him an invite to the Black Stars team for the World Cup and he ended the tournament as one of Ghana’s best players.

” It was amazing. I was already very happy when the coach called me. I immediately called my mother, and I told her that I was going to play for the country,” he said.

“I explained to her well, it’s like the Essien, the Muntari that we watched on TV when I was little, she understood better and she was very proud, my little brothers aged 15 and 10 too,”

“My mother does not know football, she had never seen me play before the World Cup where she saw me on TV. She doesn’t have time, she knows I play football, that’s all. She was very proud, because the whole family, my neighborhood, everyone shouted and sang my name. They took pictures of me around the neighborhood everywhere,”

“Arriving in selection, from the first training, I wanted to show the coach “that’s Salis”. My work pays, thank god. It also made me happy to show Ghanaians what I have become because we watch the Premier League more than Ligue 1 in Ghana,”

“It’s very strong to represent the country, because there are a lot of Ghanaian players in Europe. Everyone knows Ghana. If I’m among the 26, I’m proud of myself, it’s that I don’t cheat, that I work. This experience is a plus for the club and for me, even if we did not qualify for the knockout stages. I took a few things from my team-mates and opponents, I took a good look at players like Federico Valverde (Uruguayan midfielder from Real), how he was moving, I “stole” things from him to take another step and be a great player one day,”
