“I was surprised because at first, I thought it was fake. I didn’t believe it. First of all, I had a call from the technical director (Berhard Lippert), I was happy, but still, I was like how? Because to be honest, I had not played that much to say that I merited a call because I’ve proved [myself].” Braydon Manu disclosed when C.K Akonnor gave him the chance to feature for Ghana for the first time.

Another Bundesliga side Holstein Kiel’s forward Kwasi Okyere Wriedt provided 7 goals for his side in the just-ended season, he has appeared in five games for the senior national team and had his debut game in a friendly game against Japan and Iceland on 9 May 2018.
