- I would still be pissed off if it wasn't for the joy it was to come home to my son who was born during the World Cup, says the goalkeeper of Strømsgodset.

After Thursdays training session he spoke to VG about the sad experience in Brazil. It was his big dream, but ended as a total mess for the 26 year old, born and raised in Oslo with a mother from Norway and a father from Ghana.

- I don’t think any other football player in Norway have experienced what happened with us in Brazil. It was a sick experience. Outside the pitch it happened way too much that a football player shouldn’t have to be a part of. Trouble with the flights, the hotels and internal problems.

It all exploded when Sulley Muntari hit an executive committee member of the Ghana FA during a team meeting.

- Things like that happen when it gets to that point. At the end you get fed up. I understand his reaction after what we experienced.

- What’s your opinion about the decision to evict Kevin-Prince Boateng and Sulley Muntari from the team?

- I think it was unfair. I don’t think they did anything wrong. They stood up for the rest of the players. They spoke out, they told the truth. The truth was maybe too much for the guys running the FA.

After playing the opening match against USA, he was axed from the starting lineup just an hour or two before the second match against Germany.

- It was hopeless. We had a match meeting four or five hours before the game. At that meeting I was in the team. Then it was a little bit back and forth. And suddenly I was out. I asked why. The coach didn’t looked me in the eyes. He just looked down and said sorry. Then I understood that it probably wasn’t his choice.

Larsen Kwarasey is now considering a break from the national team.

- It’s no point travelling to Ghana if it’s other things than your performance that decides whether you play or not.
