Kwame Opoku asks for more opportunities to prove himself in Black Stars
Ghanaian forward Kwame Opoku believes he deserves another opportunity to prove his worth in the senior national team.
The former Asante Kotoko striker made his debut for Ghana in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying fixture against South Africa last month, where his performance was below expectation.
His underwhelming performance with the Black Stars saw him substituted at half-time during the penultimate Group C matchday fixture.
Subsequently, he was dropped in the game against Sao Tome and Principe back home in Accra three days later.
The 21-year-old says he needs more opportunities to show his quality at the national team level.
“I wasn’t really satisfied with my performance at the Black Stars, but the important thing is we qualified [for Afcon ultimately],” Opoku told Spice FM.
“But I will be surprised if I don’t get invited again because I need more games to prove myself.
“I never thought my development would be this quick from Division One to Kotoko and now to Black Stars.”
Opoku was unable to see a full season at Kumasi Asante Kotoko and has now joined Algerian side USM Alger.
