Stars Abroad

AFC Wimbledon forward Kwesi Appiah has suggested that it is through his current form in the English Football League One that he earned his call-up to the Ghana national team.

The 6-times capped Ghanaian who has scored a single goal for the Black Stars has been away from national duty since 2015. 

Appiah has scored four goals in 24 games in the English Football League One and according to him, Ghanaians should expect the very best from his comeback ahead of AFCON 2019 in Egypt. 

“I deserve this opportunity. They [Ghanaians] should expect to see hunger and passion to do well for the team and country,” Appiah told the AshesGyamera website. 

“This is a great opportunity which I have been working towards for some time now. So I will show my worth to the team and hopefully build towards another AFCON tournament.”

“My injuries are healed and I am training. I’m currently fit for the task ahead,” he concluded.

Ghana will match up against Kenya in their final AFCON 2019 Group F game at the Accra Sports Stadium on March 23.

The winner of the match will decide who goes above in Group F with Kenya leading the park with 7 points while the Black Stars follow with 6 points.

Kenya registered a 1-0 win over the Black Stars at the Moi International Sports Centre in the first leg of the AFCON qualification.
