Great Olympics skipper Gladson Awako has expressed his desire to play for the Black Stars in their next 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers against South Africa and Sao Tome and Principe in March.
Awako told the Graphic Sports that it was his dream to feature for his country so he looked forward to giving out his all when given the opportunity by Coach C.K Akonnor.
The Black Stars will regroup in the last week of March to play their final two qualifiers against South Africa and Sao Tome and Principe, and Awako is highly tipped to make the squad due to his outstanding performance in the ongoing Ghana Premier League
The inspirational Olympics midfielder has been in splendid form in the local league, having netted three times in nine matches.
Awako’s form saw him win the Player of the Month for December and he is looking forward to leading Olympics to finish in the top four at the end of the campaign.
“It will be a dream come true for me to play for the Black Stars. It is something I have been looking forward to all these years and I will grab the opportunity,” he said.
“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 added.
The 30-year-old playmaker has turned around his career since joining the Wonder Club in November 2019 as a free agent.
