Goalkeeper Bonsu eyes Ghana call-up ahead of Ethiopia clash

The Flying Antelopes goalkeeper is hoping to be handed an invitation to the national team ahead of the Afcon qualifier next month.

Enugu Rangers goalkeeper Nana Bonsu says he deserves a call-up to Ghana's squad ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Ethiopia.

The 29-year-old helped Rangers to win the Aiteo Cup final against Kano Pillars last weekend after saving two penalties during the shootout.

"I've been doing my best and I think I deserve this chance to represent Ghana next month," Bonsu told Goal.

"There are equally good goalkeepers around but since the call-up is solely based on form, I believe the coaching staff must give me the opportunity. At least, everyone in Nigeria is aware of my heroics and I need to be rewarded.

"With Ghana in a dire need of three points against Ethiopia to qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations, I think my presence will help. Kwesi Appiah must give me a chance. This is my time and I promise to do my best when given the opportunity," he added.

Ghana is sitting third in Group F of the qualifiers with three points, four points behind Kenya.

Bonsu was part of the Ashanti gold squad that won the 2016 Ghana Premier League.
