I need more games to prove myself at Black Stars – Kwame Opoku

Striker Kwame Opoku expects to be given another chance to prove he can live up to great expectations at the senior international level with Ghana.

The 21-year-old – in his recent short stint with Asante Kotoko – showed he has all the attributes to be a superstar and manifested it at the training grounds when he was called up to the Black Stars.

But when he was handed his debut away to South Africa in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, Opoku was completely out of sorts playing from the flanks and had to be substituted at halftime.

The new USM Alger signing was dropped and unused in the game against Sao Tome and Principe in Accra three days later.

Speaking about the experience, Opoku told Spice FM:

“I wasn’t really satisfied with my performance at the Black Stars, but the important thing is we qualified [for Afcon ultimately].

“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.”

Kwame Opoku is looking to be involved in the next international break later in June.
