Emmanuel Frimpong has his fingers crossed for his maiden call up to the Ghana national team for next monthâ€™s World Cup qualifier against Sudan.
The 21-year-old is yet to play for the Black Stars since securing FIFA clearance to feature for the four-time African champions.
The on-loan Arsenal player at Fulham is however hopeful he will get his debut Ghana call for next monthâ€™s crucial 2014 World Cup qualifier against Sudan haven received some encouragements from coach Akwasi Appiah.
â€œI want to play for Ghana and, hopefully, I can start doing that very soon,â€ he said.
â€œThat is my aim, to get into the squad. But for that to happen, I need to start playing regularly.
â€œI spoke to the manager recently and he said I should just carry on playing my football and see what happens for the next game.
â€œThat is next month so we will have to wait and see what he decides.â€
Frimpong played for England at youth level but decided to play at senior level for the Black Stars a little over a year ago.
He was finally granted permission to feature for Ghana late last year after several back and forthâ€™s between the Ghana FA and FIFA.
