“Aguero (Manchester City), Suarez (Liverpool) are players that I observe a lot. Physically, they are a bit like me and we play the same position, so they can try to inspire me,” Waris said.

“They are players that are concerned about helping their team they run and chase everything that’s more like me.”

Waris has been named in Ghana’s squad to face Montenegro in a pre-World Cup friendly on Wednesday.
