Romania giant CFR Cluj forward Emmanuel Yeboah in seventh heaven after making his debut for the Black Meteors against Algeria on Tuesday evening at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi.
The lanky striker was a late second half substitute as he came on to replace Daniel Afriyie Barnieh very late in the game against the Fennecs Foxes.
“It was an amazing feeling to contribute towards securing a favourable result in Algeria. I had always dreamed of wearing the national team jersey, and when I received the call-up, it brought me so much joy. Coming onto the field was a special moment for me,” Yeboah said.
In the second leg of the match in Kumasi, Yeboah came on as a substitute for Afriyie Barnieh in the 80th minute. He urged fans to come out in large numbers to support the Black Meteors in a video posted on the Ghana Football Association’s social media platforms.
“I am always ready to contribute my part on the field whenever the coach deems it appropriate. I am grateful to him for giving me the opportunity to represent my country and be part of the team. We have a strong and talented squad, and I am excited about that,” he added.
Yeboah has played 23 matches for CFR Cluj in the Romanian league, scoring three goals and providing as many assists.
