Qatar-based striker Opoku Agyeman is hoping to revive his international career under new boss Kwesi Appiah.

The 22-year who is currently on loan at Qatari side Al-Ahly Doha has not played for the Black Stars since the 2012 nation’s cup qualifier against Congo in Kumasi on June 3 last year.

He missed the qualifiers for the 2010 World Cup and the run-in to the 2012 African Cup of Nations but the ex-Under-17 star has set his eyes on grabbing an international lifeline under the former Black Stars skipper.

“Who knows, possibly the new coach will want to give me another chance which I hope to grab with both hands to state my case that I’m back to my former form,” Agyeman said

“That is the opportunity I am looking for to make a return to the senior national team.

“Hopefully my prayers will be answered in the coming weeks.

“It was never easy for sitting out in the stands for that lengthy period. But thank God I’m finally back and the big dream now is to return to the Black Stars,”

Opoku was a member of the Black Stars squad that won silver at the 2010 African Cup of Nations in Angola under Milovan Rajevac.

He was also a member of the Black Satellites squad that won Africa’s first ever gold medal at the World Under-20 Championship in Egypt 2009.
