Okrah excited by Black Stars B call up for CHAN qualifiers


The diminutive midfielder believes this is the beginning of good things after he has been handed invitation to help his national team

Asante Kotoko forward Augustine Okrah is thrilled to join Ghana national team B setup for preparations ahead of the clash with Burkina Faso next month.

The 25-year-old, who signed for the Porcupine Warriors last month, is among six players including goalkeeper Felix Annan called by Maxwell Konadu to fine tune ahead of the 2020 Championship of African Nations qualifier.

He reported to camp on Monday and participated in the team’s two training sessions.

“It’s a great feeling to be back to the national team and I hope to make a great impact,” Okrah told AshesGyamera.com.

“I got injured and it took me some time to recover but everyone who knows the talent I have believes I deserve more so I’m still working hard to make a mark,” he added.

Okrah also urged Kotoko supporters to remain calm as they are billed to face Etoile du Sahel next month in the Caf Champions League.

“I believe we can do something phenomenon against Etoile just like in the game against Kano Pillars. Our team is gradually picking up and will be ready for the showdown,” he said.

“The supporters shouldn’t lose hope because we won’t let them down. Kotoko is a huge club and if you’ve played or been to the northern part of Africa before, you will know how they respect us,” he added.

After winning Ghana Premier League topscorer and best player in 2014, Okrah had stints with Al Merriekh and Al Hilal of Sudan as well as Smouha in Egypt.
