“So, I will stand in front of the class and he will be asking me questions and I will be answering. He will be asking me questions as a football star because I saw it, I knew I will play for the national team,” he revealed.

He added that, he had also assured his colleagues that he would be part of the Black Stars team to play for the first time at the World Cup.
