Al Ain star Asamoah Gyan to reverse his retirement from international football and play again for Ghana.
But now The National understands the 26-year-old has decided to come out of retirement.
“The decision to return was made with the incredible support of my family, friends and the football family of Ghana," the player said.
"I am fully focused on our clear goals ahead, in helping my nation qualify for both the AFCON 2013 and the World Cup in 2014."
Gyan was targeted for abuse from fans after missing a penalty in Ghana's 1-0 semi-final defeat to Zambia in the African Cup of Nations earlier this year, a competition his side had been tipped to win.
The 59-times capped forward is currently in Austria at Al Ain's pre-season training camp, after completing his permanent move to the club from Sunderland last week.
