Former Ghana International, Hamza Mohammed says his biggest regret in his football career is not getting the opportunity to feature for the Black Stars at the World Cup.
The 40-year old who now coaches Division one side Tamale City Football Club, played in all but one of Ghana’s qualifying matches for the 2006 world cup but was dropped after the team qualified.
He made this revelation in an interview with TV3 Sports.
“I played in all the National teams from the U-17 to the senior national team, until we qualified to the World Cup.” He said.
“It is only one match that I missed against South Africa in Kumasi, aside that, I featured in all the qualifying matches.
“During those qualifiers, we had so many opportunities but the aim was that when we get to the World Cup we will get a better offer but unfortunately some of us could not make it to the World Cup for reasons best known to the authorities.
“I believe if I took that opportunity that came our way as a foreign based player, I would have made it to the World Cup. That is my only regret, but life always moves on.” He concluded.
Hamza Mohammed played for Real Tamale United for 8 years before he made the move to Kumasi Asante Kotoko in 2002.
The Tamale City Coach also featured for Ghana’s Black Starlets, the Black Satellites, Black Meteors as well as the Black Stars.
He was in the Black Stars squad that took part in the 2006 and 2002 African Cup of Nations.
