Laryea Kingston says he was left devastated when he was excluded from both the 2006 and 2010 FIFA World Cups.

The former Hearts of Oak midfielder was one of Ghana’s trusted players ahead of the 2006 FIFA World Cup, yet he was dropped for the finals after he was sent off following a clash with Senegalese Habib Baye in the 2006 African Cup of Nations, a situation that disqualified him from playing the Black Stars first two games of the Mundial.

In 2010 Laryea was part of the qualification process but he failed to make the cut for the finals when the FIFA World Cup was first played on African soil.

He has shared what he went through after the World Cup snub.

''It's a feeling I wouldn't like any football to go through especially when you played a vital role in the qualifying process," Kingston lamented on the Football Legends Night on GHONE TV last Friday.

''I was very much in pain after missing the two World Cups especially the 2010 World Cup because I wasn’t expecting to be dropped from the squad, so at point my wife had to follow me everywhere during the World Cup till it came to end for fears of my harming myself.

''She was afraid I was going to do something to myself. It was very serious and I feel pain talking about it every time."
