"I thank the nation for giving me the opportunity to be here especially coach Kwesi Appiah and his technical team."

"It's not easy to be part of the senior national team and to train with the wonderful players in camp of which I have learnt a lot from."

"I wish them all the best in the AFCON 2019."

The Black Meteors captain further revealed that he has turned his focus to the U-23 tournament.

"I have to lead the Black Meteors to the U-23 tournament in Tokyo, it's been a while Ghana qualified and we are going to do our best to secure qualification."

The Meteors will be facing Algeria's U-23 in the final round of the qualifying series with the winner progressing to the 3rd edition of the Africa U-23 Cup of Nations.
