RC Strasbourg defender Alexander Djiku has detailed his integration into the Ghana senior national team.

Djiku earned his debut call-up to the Black Stars for the double header friendlies against Mali and Qatar last week.

The 26-year-old played full throttle in both games and capped it with excellent performances.

His arrival appears to have signaled a new dawn in the West African giants team ahead of crucial 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers.

The France-born defender explained he was able to hit the ground running with the four-time Africa champions due to the large number of French-speaking players in the squad.

"It went very well! We know the atmosphere of Africa, we know that the players like to laugh, I did not have too many doubts about my ability to integrate well. I already knew some players like Enock Kwateng (Bordeaux defender), but also the Ayew brothers ... They played in France for a long time, we exchanged a lot. As soon as I had a problem or a question, I would go through them. It really made my integration easier.

Djiku missed Strasbourg's 3-2 loss to Olympique Lyon over the weekend through suspension but will surely be reinstated into the squad when they travel to Brest on Sunday.
