Jamaican Dancehall singer, Mr. Vegas —in a recent interview with Takoradi -based Paragon FM —has expressed despondency  at the absence of Ghana’s Black Stars at the ongoing Russia 2018 World Cup.

Speaking to Music Pharmacy host, Dj ALjahZEEra, Vegas —born Clifford Smith — divulged that he’s a football afficionado, and called the nation’s  2010 squad (consisting Asamoah Gyan, Stephen Appiah, Suley Muntari, André Ayew, Asamoah Gyan among others) his favourite team, lauding their skill and discipline, and adding that they had the chance to go to the final in South Africa, but missed out sadly —something that he described as ” really heartbreaking”.

The 43 year-old also expressed hope that a team as good as that squad will be assembled for the next World Cup, slated for Qatar in 2022.

All 5 African teams at this year’s competition crumbled out of the group stages when Senegal, after losing to Columbia, became the first side in history to be eliminated from the World Cup based on their fair play points. Nigeria, Tunisia, Egypt, and Morocco have also been eliminated.

Many analysts hold the opinion that had Ghana qualified, she would have progressed into the knockout phase.
