My Black Stars call up is highly emotional - Adomah

Albert Adomah says his presence in the Ghana national team is so emotional that it brings tears into the eyes of his parents.

The 25-year-old made the final 23-man squad of the Black Stars for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.

Adomah who plays his club football in the English championship with Bristol City is one of 10 players to be making their debut in a Ghana shirt at Africa’s flagship competition.

As delighted as he is to be part of the Black Stars squad hoping to end a 31-year wait for an African title in South Africa, the ex Barnet player says the effects are even more apparent when it comes to his parents.

“This is going to be my first major tournament – Africa Nations and it is a privilege to play for your motherland, it is just unbelievable, actually speechless,” he told Citi FM.

“I am so happy that I am part of the 23 man squad.

“Obviously it’s a major tournament and this is my first major tournament and I am actually looking forward to it, I am just delighted.

“What I can say is it is just a privilege to play for your country where your mum and dad come from.

“And to play or to be part of a tournament like this, it actually brings tears to my mum and my dad’s eyes when they watch me on tv if I am involved.”

Adomah’s impressive performance with lightening pace in the championship earned his a place in the Ghana team.

The winger is expected to use these attributes coupled with his accurate crosses and now goals to help Ghana win the Nations Cup in South Africa.

He is expected to play a part in Ghana’s first warm up game against Egypt on Thursday ahead of this month’s competition which starts on January 19.
