Karela's Diawisie Taylor says he deserves to be in Ghana squad for 2019 AFCON

Karela United striker Charles Diawisie Taylor believes he deserves a place in Black Stars squad for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt between June and July.

The 19-year-old is currently the top goalscorer of the ongoing competition with eight goals after 11 games.

The youngster has put up impressive performances on matchdays and he is confident his performances could earn him a call-up to the senior national team ahead of the AFCON.

Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah is expected to name a 30-man provisional squad for the next month's tournament.

“If l am to take some factors into consideration, l really deserve to be in the squad for the AFCON,” Diawisie told Kumasi-based radio station Angel FM

“But all depends on the head of the technical team for if he calls me fine… and If he didn’t…we then have to see what God has in stock for me with regards to the national team call-up,”

“It’s the prayer and aspiration of every player to don the national colours of his country but if it didn’t happen at the targeted period in ones career, it must have no telling effect momentarily in ones outing as what may be ahead in the future will be enormous in his playing career."

"So l am praying that l will soon get the opportunity to play for the national team.”
