Attram eyes Ghana call-up ahead of 2017 Afcon

The Bankers star striker is hoping to land his maiden national team invite to help the Black Stars in the upcoming Afcon

Zanaco FC striker Kwame Attram has revealed his readiness to help Ghana at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.

The 25-year-old has been one of Zambia Premier League's top performers after joining Zanaco from Congolese side Sportive Bazano.

He has played almost every game in the second half of the season, scoring important goals as his club rose to top of the log with 72 points, five points ahead of second-placed Nkana FC.

And with Ghana struggling to win games in the absence of skipper Asamoah Gyan, the former Asante Kotoko striker claims he has acquired the requisite experience to deliver should coach Avram Grant give him the chance and support.

“My current form gives me confidence that I can deliver the goods for the Black Stars anytime I get a call-up,” Attram was quoted as saying by Footballghana.com.

“Lately, results have not been forthcoming for the country and I believe this is the time to grasp the opportunity when I'm invited.

“However, I know competition for a place in the team has made things difficult but I’m still trying to use my performance in the Zambia league to convince the handlers that I’m always available for selection when needed,” he added.

With Gyan facing injuries that limited him to only two games in 2016, none of the available strikers including Jordan Ayew and Majeed Waris have been able to score in Ghana’s last five games.
