Ghana's No. 1

Striker Affum wants to boost Ghana's Olympics qualification

Egypt-based striker Samuel Afum is counting on his experience to help the Ghana's Under-23 to make a bright start in their 2012 Olympic Games qualifier.

The Smouha SC attacker is the only foreign-based player in the squad after teenager Bright Addae on loan at Spanish third division outfit Terrassa was ruled out due to travelling complications.

The Egyptian League is currently on a break due to the political upheaval and Afum is keen to make the best out of the opportunity.

"This is one chance that I want to take advantage off to prove that I'm a good player. Such chances hardly come by so if you get it, you make sure you don’t fluff it," Afum told

"I want to bring my experience garnered from the Egyptian League to bear on the team. It’s important we get enough goals in the first leg to make the second a mere formality."

The Black Meteors, bronze medalists at the Barcelona 1992 Olympics, missed out on the last edition in Beijing.

The team will travel to Khartoum in a fortnight.
