Ghana midfielder Mohammed Abu admits his chances of playing in his second straight Nations Cup finals are slim.

The 21-year-old made his Nations Cup debut in the last edition in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.

Abu has however struggled to get regular first team action since joining  Spanish club Rayo Vallecano on a season’s-long loan deal at the beginning of the campaign.

The Right to Dream Academy as a result agrees it will be difficult to make the Black Stars squad for South Africa 2013.

“I got the chance to play at the Nations Cup for the first time at Gabon and Equatorial Guinea,” he told

“I was hoping I will play in the next one in South Africa as part of my progression but it appears I might not make it.

“I have not played many games this season and this is the reason.”

Abu has won four caps for the Black Stars but is yet to score his first international goal.

He has not played for Ghana since featuring in the 2-0 defeat to Mali in the third-place playoff in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.

    Don't worry Abu if you don't get to the next edition of AFCON. You are still a very talented midfielder and still very young. Just keep on working hard at your new club; get regular appearances and you can still make it to the squad for the remaining 2014 WC Qualifiers and hopefully cement your place in the team Wish you good luck and may all your dreams come true.
