Ghana international Kamaldeen Sulemana says the Black Stars have a bright future despite the poor showing at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
The Black Stars exited the competition in the group stage of the competition after just one win in three games while losing the other two.
Kamaldeen was involved in two games at the Mundial in Qatar, playing as a substitute in the games against South Korea and Uruguay.
Despite the backlash from Ghanaians, the 20-year-old believes the team still has the potential to achieve great things in the coming years after the World Cup experience.
“I think we learned a lot, especially the young players because there’s so much ahead of us,” he told BBC.
“As a squad we’re good together. We kept the ball on the ground and showed what Africans can do; moving forward I think the improvement is going to continue. The future is bright for the team.
Kamaldeen sealed a transfer deadline-day move to Southampton after a lack of game time at Stade Rennes following his return from the World Cup.
