Having featured at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Gabon/Equatorial Guinea, striker Kwesi Appiah is aiming to make yet another appearance at the continental football competition this year with the Black Stars.

The AFC Wimbledon attacker wants to make the Ghana team for this year’s Cup of Nations in Egypt.


Appiah was handed an invitation for Ghana’s final Cup of Nations qualifier against Kenya after a four-year absence.

The 28-year-old prior to his call-up for the game against Kenya last made an appearance for the National team in the semi-finals of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations tournament against Equatorial Guinea.

He is hoping to break into Coach Kwesi Appiah’s squad for the Cup of Nations which begins in June.


“For me going back to Afcon would be a massive honour,” Appiah told the BBC World Service’s Sportsworld programme.

“I’ve given everything, every time I’ve been in that shirt, the coach knows that, the players know my value in the team.

“I’m hopeful I will get that call because I have unfinished business and we as a nation have unfinished business. Hopefully the experience from the previous tournament I went to can be taken into consideration.


“It was nice to be involved in the recent squad and show what I can do ahead of the final selection for Egypt.

“I had a good chat with the manager, we’ve got a good relationship, we’re pretty open and honest about things and hopefully that call comes and we can get back together again and create some magic.”

The former Crystal Palace forward faces a huge test from the likes of captain Asamoah Gyan, Jordan Ayew, Caleb Ekuban, Abdul Majeed Waris among others.
