"It is not easy to be part of the national team squad. I mean playing under this wonderful players, Asamoah Gyan, Ayew, Wakaso, Atsu, all these big big players that have big names in Africa, in Ghana, I mean for me it's a pleasure to play with them and learn a lot.

"Playing under a wonderful coach like Kwesi Appiah, former player like Tanko and all these management with big names in Africa and Ghana. Being part of them makes me special because it makes me feel like I'm being under good people.
