One of the star performers of Ghana's World Cup campaign, Andre Ayew says he is proud with his displays in South Africa.

The 20-year old picked up the Man of the Match prize in the Black Stars' 2-1 win over the United States in the round of 16 clash after an impressive run of form.

Despite his failure to play in the quarter final match for being suspended against Uruguay due to his accumulation of two yellow cards, the youngster says he's left the tournament with "good and bad memories" but insists the players who represented their country have done themselves proud.

"I am leaving with good and bad memories because we did something great for Ghana but we could have done something even bigger for the continent," he told KickOffGhana.com.

"Overall though I am proud of what we have done. In the end luck was not on our side but we can all hold our head high."

Andre, son of Ghana legend Abedi Pele has witnessed a tremendous rise in stature since an unimpressive start for the Black Stars at the 2008 Nations Cup, then as 17 year-old.

But he's finally living up to his potential after leading Ghana to victory at the Under-20 World Cup and also playing a key role in the 2010 Nations Cup, where the Black Stars finished as runners-up.

"I needed to confirm that after a good tournament in Angola and a good Under-20 World Cup so I needed to confirm that I am good enough for the international stage.

"Personally it’s been a good tournament for me and I hope that I am progressing. I am just 20 and need to continue working hard".
