Speaking to a local radio station on his maiden call up, the former AshantiGold striker said.
“To be named in the Black Star team for AFCON is going to be crazy and I won’t be able to get the words to describe the feeling if I find my name in the squad. You can even imagine what it would mean for me from where I’m from”.
“Even in Tamale here, the number of players here is a lot, how much more Ghana and we have so many professionals who even play outside. To get the opportunity to be named in the squad is just going to be wow. It is a dream come true”, he added.
The 23-year old has played nine league matches for his club, scoring eight goals with two goals.
He is part of the five home-based players that were named in the Black Stars provisional squad to start camping in Qatar ahead of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Cameroon.
