Emmanuel Frimpong is eager to make his Ghana debut soon as the midfielder hopes to force his way into Kwesi Appiah's team.
The 21-year-old player was last year given international clearance to represent Ghana but missed the cut for the Africa Cup of Nations.
Frimpong, who is on a six-month loan at Fulham from Arsenal is hoping that his temporary switch to Craven Cottage will help him catch the eye of the Black Stars coach, Appiah.
“I want to play for Ghana and, hopefully, I can start doing that very soon,” Frimpong told the London Evening Standard.
“That is my aim, to get into the squad. But for that to happen, I need to start playing regularly.”
And the player, who is yet to represent Ghana at international level has been encouraged by Appiah's frank assessment of his chances.
“I spoke to the manager recently and he said I should just carry on playing my football and see what happens for the next game. That is next month so we will have to wait and see what he decides,” he said.
