Ghana winger Tarique Fosu has revealed that his greatest ambition is to help the Black Stars end their long wait for an AFCON trophy.

'It came in quite late but when the coach called me to come, I said I was very happy to come and I spoke to him before and I’m happy that he gave me the chance to perform and show my qualities."

The Black Stars need a point to qualify for the next AFCON in Cameroon.

The Brentford attacker is confident the country will qualify for the competition is 2022, but his dream will be to win the tournament.

"I want to win trophies, bring trophies back home and try to help the team as much as possible to bring a trophy to people back home," said Fosu.
