Hearts of Oak defender, Samuel Inkoom has opened up on his days with the Black Stars after a long-term absence.
The experienced right-back says his time with the senior national soccer team was great. The former U-20 World Cup winner also disclosed that he was getting an advise from the senior players and through his humbleness he was drew closer to the former captain, Stephen Appiah.
Speaking in an interview on Atinka Tv’s Kick-Off Sports, the MTN FA Cup winner declared, “My time in the Black Stars was great. I had luck with everyone. I was always getting good advise from all the senior players because of my hardwork and humbleness but Stephen Appiah took me as a younger brother and l was mostly with him.”
Inkoom’s journey to global relevance started when he played in Ghana’s trophy winning campaign at the 2009 Under 20 Nations Cup in Rwanda and went ahead to win the FIFA World Cup in Egypt – a first for Ghana and Africa.
Inkoom was also part of a crop of underrated youthful players who made it to the final of the Africa Cup of Nations final in Angola, losing by a goal to Egypt.
He has since earned 46 caps for the Back Stars of Ghana.
