Ghana international Gideon Mensah says despite the many setbacks he has faced with the national team, it has been a good journey since making his Black Stars debut.
The left-back was involved in Ghana’s 2022 FIFA World Cup campaign in Qatar where he played in the 3-2 win over South Korea.
Mensah made his debut for the Black Stars on November 14, 2019, and has gone on to make 13 appearances in Ghana’s colours including an appearance at the World Cup.
Asked what his time with the national team has been, Gideon Mensah told Star Connect it’s been a good ride so far though he faced some difficulties.
“Ever since I made my debut, it has been a very good journey,” he said.
“Obviously with ups and downs but generally it’s been very good for me. I started in the year 2019 against South Africa in Cape Coast which I wasn’t too sure if I was going to play that game because I got into the team as a late call-up.
“Two days before the game they were asking me to be ready and Lumor [Agbenyanu] came to me and said he might not play. Then before the game, Kwasi Appiah came to me and said I should be ready. That night, I turned off my phone after I told my agent about everything.
“Since then there have been ups and downs, there are some games where I played and had bad games or didn’t play at all. I was still working hard and hoping my time will come.”
