Appiah wants a place in squad for AFCON 2019


AFC Wimbledon striker Kwesi Appiah is hoping to make the Ghana national team for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

He was a key player for Ghana when he featured in the 2015 AFCON under Avram Grant.

He has, however, been left out of the team since the return of Kwesi Appiah. The team currently boasts of players like Asamoah Gyan, Raphael Dwamena leading the attack.

Speaking to Goal, he said;

“I haven’t heard from the new coach [Kwesi Appiah] but I think I just have to keep playing well and score goals and see what happens after that”

“I had a good time with the Black Stars and representing Ghana in the Afcon again will always hold high value in the list of my targets and goals to achieve in 2019. Playing at the tournament again is 100% a target of mine.”

When he was asked could do better than their performance in the game against Cote d’Ivoire in 2015, he responded by saying;

“Of course. I believe the players who have most recently played for the national team have great potentials as well as the consistent performances from the more experienced players from the previous squad.

“We contain the qualities as a team to lift the trophy in the upcoming tournament and I will be glad to be part of the historic moment if the coach will hand me a chance,” he added.
