Ghana left-back, Baba Rahman, says playing at the 2022 World Cup with the Black Stars was a nice experience.

The 28-year-old started the game against Portugal and made a substitute appearance in the South Korea game before playing the full 90 minutes versus Uruguay as the Black Stars fell off in the group phase.

Baba has been hugely vilified for his performances in the tournament and how he was selected ahead of AJ Auxerre’s Gideon Mensah.   

On his return to Reading, UK for club football, the Black Stars defender explained that playing at the World cup means coming up against superstars like Cristiano Ronaldo and Son Heung-min.

“I mean, that’s what the World Cup is meant for. You have to play against the best players in the world,” he told Reading media in an interview.

“So, it was a nice experience playing against them, but I mean, I’ve played against Son several times when we played in Germany, so it was a nice experience.”

Touching on Reading’s game on Saturday against Coventry, he said: “It’s always nice I mean having a home game and I’m looking forward to this weekend and hopefully we can get the three points.”

Baba Rahman is playing for Reading in the Championship on loan from Premier League side, Chelsea.
