Former Black Stars head coach, Charles Kwabla Akonnor believes Abdul Fatawu Issahaku can be Ghana’s outstanding player at the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament when he gets his opportunity.
According to the former Ghana coach, the 19-year-old Dreams FC prodigy when given the opportunity has the potential to showcase his talent and quality to the world.
“If you get a chance as a youngster. You should be ready. What he did with the U-20 is graduation. When he came to the Black Stars i integrated him gradually. He stands a big chance to show his talent if he gets the opportunity”, he told Happy FM.
Currently, Akonnor is the record youngest Ghanaian player to score at the Africa Cup of Nations tournament at the age of 20 against Kenya at the 1994 tournament in Tunisia.
The sensational kid could be on the verge to break Akonnor’s record should he score for the Black Stars at the upcoming tournament.
Issahaku was the Most Valuable Player of the CAF Youth Championship in Mauritania when emerged winners of the tournament for the fourth time.
