AFCON 2019: Annan hoping to start for Ghana against Sierra Leone

Asante Kotoko goalkeeper Felix Annan is already dreaming of a starting spot after earning his second call-up to Ghana team ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Sierra Leone.

The 26-year-old is one of the best shot-stoppers in the Ghana Premier League and the only locally-based player named in the Black Stars' 23-man squad.

“My main ambition after getting another call-up to the national team is to start against Sierra Leone," Annan told Fox FM.

"The last time I was invited to the squad, I didn’t get an opportunity to play but this time around I’m going to work hard when we begin camping and I hope I will be given the chance to prove myself.

"I have what it takes to start because being the number one goalkeeper of the biggest club in the country exposes you to several challenges which prepare you for future challenges.

"All that I need now is that the technical team must have faith and try me in the post,” he added.

The Black Stars will begin their fine tuning on October 8 in Kumasi.
