There are a lot of players' doing well domestically, who are willing to ensure cool and consistency in their performance of late but one player who can not be left out this time is Gladson Awako. The 30 year old has been ever present for the ‘Dade Boys’ this season, contributing 6 goals to the campaign thus far while providing a host of game changing plays. The Wonder Club have racked up 21 points and are 6th on the league log ahead of their matchweek 14 encounter against Elmina Sharks at home. Awako who is an U – 20 World Cup winner confirmed that it will be an honor to represent his nation at the senior level.
Great Olympics head coach, Annor Walker, believes captain Gladson Awako deserves a call up to the Black Stars. Awako, a former FIFA U-20 World Cup winner, has been a revelation in the ongoing Ghana Premier League for the Wonder Club. According to him, Awako’s performance merits him a call up to the Black Stars ahead of the 2022 African Cup of Nations [Afcon] qualifiers against South Africa and Sao Tome.
“He has been playing according to my instructions right from preseason and his command on the field is unbelievable. When I recommended him for the management and the board, they did not reject my proposal because they knew what he can offer the club".
The exciting forward says he will continue to work hard for Olympics to merit an invite to the Black Stars in the next call-up. “The coach will decide when the time comes but I will continue working hard to ensure I make the team in their next grouping,” he said. The Black Stars will resume the qualifiers to the next AFCON tournament in March. If Gladson Awako is able to maintain his form, he is likely to be part of the team.
What has been happening over the years is bias selections but this time I want to see every stakeholder in the media and Ghana to applaud the good work of C.k. Akonnor. Already the coach is said to have settled on leading local players, including Asante Kotoko goalkeeper Razak Abalora, Great Olympics midfielder Gladson Awako, Kotoko defender Abdul Ismail Ganiyu, the Premier League’s leading goal scorer Diawisie Taylor of Karela United and AshantiGold's leading marksman Yaw Annor, who have made the initial cut for the squad.
