France-based defender Alexander Djiku is happy Black Stars made a ‘good start’ in their 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
Djiku was impressive as Black Stars defeated Ethiopia in their first match of the qualifiers on Friday evening.
The Strasbourg centre-back lasted the entire duration of the game and formed a solid partnership with Leicester City defender at the back as Black Stars kept a clean sheet against the East Africans.
After the match, Djiku took to his social media to celebrate, posting “good start in the FIFA World Cup qualifiers” on Twitter.

He revealed his inclusion in the squad for the South Africa clash in Johannesburg.
Djiku will start again on Monday but will have a new partner at the back because Amartey did not make the trip.
Amartey along with Jordan Ayew, Andy Yiadom, Baba Rahman and Jeffrey Schlupp won’t play against South Africa because the country is on UK red list.
English clubs have blocked their players from travelling to red list countries for qualifiers.
