Ghana U-20 midfielder, Clifford Aboagye has expressed his readiness to play for Ghana's senior national team, the Black Stars. Aboagye played a vital role for the Black Satellites during the 2013 and 2015 FIFA World Cups in Turkey and New Zealand respectively.
Since the days of Bayern lynchpin Samuel Osei Kuffuor and John “Rock of Gibraltar” Mensah, Ghana have struggled to produce for the Black Stars a consistently astute centre back who could both organize the defence and protect the goal, with the likes of John Boye, Isaac Vorsah, Rashid Sumaila and Jonathan Mensah all trying and struggling to some extent to lead the Black Stars from the back. In Mohammed Salisu, however, Ghana might have just found the next solid guardian of the Black Stars.
The football industry was heavily represented at the One Week observation of the late Opoku Afriyie, a former striker of the senior national team, the Black Stars. President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kurt Edwin Simeon-Okraku led the delegation.
