Former Asante Kotoko striker Opoku: 'I need more Ghana matches to prove myself'.

Late Asante Kotoko forward Opoku accepts he merits another chance to demonstrate his value in the shades of the Ghana public group.

On his introduction during the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying installation against South Africa a month ago, the forward put on a disappointing execution in what finished in a 1-1 attract away Johannesburg.

"In any case, I will be astonished in the event that I don't get welcomed again on the grounds that I need more games to substantiate myself.

"I never figured my improvement would be this rapidly from Division One to Kotoko and now to Black Stars."

In his first full season with Kotoko, Opoku has been not able to see out the term, having needed to join Algerian outfit USM Alger.

He got the attention of scouts with seven objectives for the Porcupine Warriors during the first round of the Ghana Premier League.

"I'm alright with my exhibition at Kotoko despite the fact that I feel there is more in me to give them, yet time didn't allow that, the 21-year-old added.

"A great deal was considered prior to choosing to join USM Alger - the stage [playing for them provides], along with the danger implied in football and its business."

A significant idea in regard to Opoku's less than impressive appearing against South Africa was his arrangement in what was somewhat a strange position.

Having made his name as a middle forward with Kotoko, the youth was given a beginning job on the left wing by Ghana mentor CK Akonnor, a circumstance many accept added to his failure on the day.
