Goalkeeper Agyei still relishing Ghana chance at 2013 AFCON finals
By Patrick Akoto
Goalkeeper Daniel Adjei is refusing to give up hopes of warming his way back into the Black Stars.
The Liberty Professionals man has been overlooked by coach Kwesi Appiah due to his in-activeness during the off-season.
But the 22-year-old is up and running in post for the scientific soccer lads this season and the former Ghana Under-20 star is confident of fighting his way back into the team ahead of the 2013 African Cup of Nations in South Africa.
“I believe now that we’re playing the league, I will find my way back into the team,” Agyei told local radio station XYZ
“I always do my best for my team and so I think I will get a recall-into the national team.”
Agyei was in goal for the Black Stars when they played against the Bafana Bafana of South Africa in a high-profile friendly soon after the 2010 World Cup.
He was also in goal when Ghana made history by becoming the first African team to win the elusive FIFA U20 World Cup in 2009.
He is a penalty kick stopper, agile and widely seen as the future for Ghana but must now fight for the slot with Ashantigold’s Fatawu Dauda, Philemon McCarthy of Heart of Oak and Berekum Chelsea’s shot-stopper Ernest Sowah.
Norwegian-based Adam Kwarasey is already guaranteed a place in the team.
