The midfielder cannot describe his feeling after wearing the Black Stars jersey for the first time in his life and he believes Ghana are on course to Brazil 2014
Fulham midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong has described his debut game for Ghana as “a great day” in his life as Ghana thumped Sudan 4-0 in a 2014 World Cup qualifier on Sunday.

The on-loan Arsenal midfielder was introduced into the game in the 67th minute and steadily won the heart of the teeming home crowd.

Frimpong, who represented England at the Under-16 and 17 levels before switching allegiance to Ghana, was optimistic he made the right choice after making his Ghana bow in Kumasi.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity for me,” he said after the match. “I made my feeling clear I wanted to play for Ghana and the coach gave me this opportunity.”

“It is a great day for my family and for me and it’s a day I would cherish for the rest of my life.”

Frimpong added: “After beating Sudan, we have a great chance. We just have to continue working hard and see how it goes. We want to go to Brazil.”
