The time is ripe for the son of the Maestro to convert his experience into reality. How to rally his colleagues towards a common goal must not be an albatross on his neck as he led a team of players to FIFA Under 20 World Cup feat in Egypt 2009. His leadership thoughts are swimming through a gigantic test, which can only be exonerated with qualification.

Dede Ayew, 31, may not be gifted another glorious moment by age, hence ought to make the present opportunity linger forever in the National team.
