Black Stars defender Patrick Kpozo says his debut with the national team didn’t go to plan as he wanted as the team failed to pick up the maximum points.
Kpozo played the full game as Ghana was held to a 1-1 draw against Madagascar in their penultimate Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers on Sunday, June 18.
The left-back debuted in the absence of Gideon Mensah and Abdul Baba Rahman and was expected to justify his selection.
However, Kpozo didn’t really make a good impression just like the rest of the team and the player was aware of what his performance meant.
“It wasn’t the one I was expecting,” he said in an interview with CitiSports when asked about his thoughts on making his first appearance for the national team.
“I was expecting us to win but [we didn’t]. I think it was okay.
“Everyone wants to be called to the national team and I feel proud being part of the Black Stars.”
Kpozo will be hoping he gets continuity at his club side which could see him make a possible return to the national team for the September assignment against Central Africa Republic with the Black Stars chasing qualification to next year’s AFCON.
