Bournemouth forward Antoine Semenyo expressed his joy after delivering the crucial assist that secured Ghana’s qualification for the Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast.
The 23-year-old forward made an immediate impact as a substitute, setting up Ernest Nuamah for the decisive goal in Kumasi.
In a challenging game where Ghana had to come from behind to defeat the Central African Republic, Semenyo reflected, “That was a good game, tough game and the pitch was not so good and the opposition surprised us, they were really good and of course I am happy to say I came off to provide the assist for the winner,” he told AFCB TV ahead of the game against Stoke City in the EFL Cup.“
Semenyo is anticipated to be part of Ghana’s squad for the Africa Cup of Nations in January, and the English-born forward is already looking forward to the tournament, acknowledging that it will be a tough challenge.
“It’s going to be tough but I am ready to embrace that challenge,” he added.
The tall forward has scored one goal in four matches in the English Premier League this season.
