Former Black Stars goalkeeper Richard Kingson revealed that he was very hurt when his brother Laryea was left out of the FIFA world cups in 2006 and 2010.

He added that he even went to the extent of talking to Milovan Rajevac in 2010 at midnight after his exclusion because he believed that he deserved a place.

“Laryea Kingston is doing well. He recently won a trophy with his academy and that is fantastic. I will encourage him to do more. The sky is the limit for him. When he was dropped in the 2006 tournament, it was a 50-50 decision. Personally, I was not hurt much like the 2010. I felt he should have been there," he told Joy Sports.

"I felt so bad that I conceded three or four goals against Holland. I went off because he deserved to be there. He played the qualifiers and he was fit and in form. I even went to the coach on midnight and asked him why he didn’t pick Laryea Kingston because he deserved to be there. I thought he would be called to compensate for the 2006 disappointment.”
