The on-loan Arsenal midfielder said he is prepared to play a role in Sunday’s World Cup qualifying tie against Sudan once the coach gives him the chance in his debut call-up

Fulham midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong has admitted it will take a great deal of hard work to grab a starting role in the Ghana team.

However, he said earning his debut call-up is a clear indication that coach Kwesi Appiah has confidence in him and he is prepared to play a role to move the team forward.

Frimpong said: “I have got a chance to play that is why the manager brought be here.”

“We have got some great midfielders and obviously it is going to take time for me to gel in. I am looking to take my chance and hopefully when I get my chance I can take it.”

The on-loan Arsenal midfielder concedes playing at the national level comes with a lot of pressure, but was quick to add he is well psyched up to play before the home crowd in Kumasi against Sudan on Sunday.

“Football is pressure but wherever I play there is pressure and hopefully I can take the pressure and see what I can do.”
