Spain-based midfielder Paul Quaye, who plays for Malaga, is saddened by his continuous snub at the international level by Ghana.
The 18-year-old, who is the nephew of legendary Hearts of Oak midfielder Shamo Quaye, has stayed grounded for a breakthrough at the international level for Ghana's U20 side.
The youngster failed to play for the Black Satellites at the 2013 World Youth Championship in Turkey due to injury.
Quaye has since been waiting for a chance with the team and he is devastated he’s been overlooked despite churning out fine performances for the Spanish side.
“It’s sad and disappointment that you never get the chance to play for your national team,” he told Adom FM.
“I have been waiting for that chance again but it’s simply not coming now.
“I am hopeful of being called up into the team but naturally I feel sad because I have been overlooked for far too long.
“It’s the dream of every player to represent his country at the international level and that’s what I’m working towards.”
Quay pledged his future to Ghana despite numerous overtures from the Spanish authorities.
He was called up into Ghana’s U17 team four years ago.
