According to Darkwah, he had been waiting for this very moment to play for the club because the head coach had promised to give him a chance to showcase his skills. 

"I wasn't surprised I was included in the starting eleven because the coach had told me to prepare because he was going to give me a chance after being off for these months", he told Oyerepa FM

The left-back was thrilled that his debut game ended in a victory.

"I am happy my debut game for Kotoko in the Confederations Cup ended in a win. I thank coach CK Akunnor for the opportunity and my colleagues as well.
