Richmond Boakye Yiadom is describing the experience of his Black Stars as a blessing after being selected in the team for the matches in Ethiopia as well as South Africa.
The Israel-based striker, who been credited with two goals at Beitar Jerusalem, is one of the forwards selected to take part in the crucial World Cup qualifiers. This is his first selection in the last four years.
He scored a brace during an unassuming friendly game on Monday against Golden Kicks as the Black Stars began preparations for their games.
“It’s a blessing to be back. I always cherish the opportunity to be part of the national team, so I’m excited to join the squad and ready to give my best. The feeling of unity is great. Everything in camp is peaceful,” Yiadom said.
These two games are crucial in players of the Black Stars, as they must earn six points to be eligible to play in the play-offs.
“I believe we have enough quality and experience to beat Ethiopia and South Africa. It won’t be smooth sailing, but is not beyond our ability as a team.”
Ghana will face Ethiopia first on Thursday, November 11, before playing South Africa in Cape Coast on Sunday, November 14.
