The new Black Star talks about his first invitation to the four-time African champions’ squad

Young Boys defender Kasim Adams Nuhu is delighted by his maiden call-up to Ghana’s national set-up.

The centre-back is among the surprise inclusions in coach James Kwesi Appiah’s squad for Saturday’s World Cup qualifier against Uganda.

The 22-year-old was the first foreign-based player to arrive in Ghana’s camp in Kampala and could well be handed a debut on Saturday due to the injury-forced absence of Jonathan Mensah and John Boye.

“I’m happy with the call-up to the Black Stars team,” Adams told Sports World Ghana.

“It’s really a dream come true invitation. It is also an honour for me.

“I will do my best and make sure I don’t disappoint Ghanaians, one thing I can promise all Ghanaians is hardwork.

“I’m ready to defend the Black Stars colours when given the chance since that is my job as a player.”

Adam’s call-up has everything to do with his form at club level.
