David Accam insists he can cope with Ghana pressure

Ghana new boy David Accam says he has the temperament to cope with the pressure that comes with playing for the Black Stars.

The 22-year-old Helsingborg striker was a surprise inclusion in coach Kwesi Appiah 23-man squad for Sunday’s World Cup qualifier against Sudan at the Baba Yara stadium in Kumasi.

The former Right to Dream Academy graduate is aware of the enormity of the task placed on his shoulders but confident he can deal with the pressure.

“I am really excited to be in Ghana and it’s every boy’s dream to play for his country. It’s always amazing to play for your country so I am really happy,” Accam told reporters

“Anytime you get into football it’s about pressure. I play in the Champions League, there is a massive pressure in Sweden for people to watch you play.

“Pressure on the pitch is the same everywhere, so I can cope with the pressure.

“I love to play football. Anytime I score, I am happy, my family are happy and my friends are happy.

"I would do my best and I would not do anything different. I would just do what I am used to like taking players on and scoring goals.”

Accam has been in fine scoring form in the Swedish top-flight where he has scored important goals for Helsingborg.

    King, how old are you? Twelve? Thirteen? Don't you have better things to do than to troll other nations' football websites with homophobic slurs? It seems like a pretty sad, backwards existence.

    Hey guys! This ape called King is not a human being, am told his mind is as blind as his words. Infact, he wants to associate himself with us to learn how to be trained to become human. PLEASE kindly don't waste your time on an animal who doesn't even know the spiece he belongs. Penis sack ape like this calling himself a human name. Ah!

    Can these animals stop exposing their animalisms? Don't they have any animal friendly website they can share their myopic thoughts on? Is a shame the way they lay bare their ignorance. Have you asked yourself why every one insults your kind of fungi? Reason and save the face of your fellow countrymen. Please we all know you can't reason well but don't let the others who are meeting you for the first time read abt you.

    Imposter, first you said ur name was 'King' and now ' black star is here' by the way that's how animals behave. Accept the fact that u r not a human being. Knowing this, we may do something about your presence on our site. Okay, we like to meet pp who share respectable facets of constructive arguments NOT like your unfounded attacks and insults. You may continue chewing your grass. Ape!

    Please, let us not engage in this dehumanizing talk to another one of our brothers. Frankly that kind of talk is reminiscent of the colonizers and slavers who rationalized their deeds by using this very language against Africans. Obviously this King fellow is young and immature. Surely we can respond in a more intelligent manner fitting for adults.

    They can't boast abt their nation. Oliver don't bother yourself, its just only one animal having soo many names and disturbing human beings with ITS ignorance. It is an animal. It doesn't have a habitat, let alone boast of it or its inhabitants.
