Abdul Majeed Waris has wished the Black Stars well following his omission from Ghana’s final 23-man squad for 2019 AFCON.

Despite his successful loan spell with FC Nantes last season, where he scored seven goals in all competition;

Waris was overlooked by coach Kwesi Appiah in favor of Jordan Ayew (Crystal Palace, England), Caleb Ekuban  (Trabzonspor, Turkey) and Kwabena  Owusu (Leganes, Spain).

“It’s the ambition of any footballer to represent his country, maybe this year’s Afcon is not the will of God,” Waris told BBC Sport.

“I’m a Ghanaian and still a fan of the Black Stars, so I can only wish the guys all the best in Egypt because they deserve our support.

“I may not have got the nod as expected but I will be supporting my country and hoping we can win it because that is always the target.

“Playing for Ghana is always an honour. I believe with the players we have and the coaches the team can go all the way in Egypt.”
