Ghanaian striker, Ebenezer Assifuah has revealed why he failed to give out his best in terms of goals during his time with the Black Stars.
Assifuah had established himself as one of Ghana’s brightest talents at the youth level when he won the Golden Boot during the FIFA U-20 World Cup in 2013 with six goals.
His electric displays guided him to earn a maiden call-up into the senior national soccer team, the Black Stars in 2016.
Assifuah made his first appearance for the senior Ghana national football team as a starter in a 0-0 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying tie with Mozambique on 27 March 2016. Later he was selected for 2017 Africa Cup of Nations, but remained on the bench throughout while his team finished in fourth place.
The 29-year-old forward speaking in an interview blamed lack of playing time as the cause of his failure at the Black Stars.
Preaching out why he failed to shine at the senior national soccer team, the French-based player said: “I couldn’t get enough playing time at the Black stars that’s why Ghanaians couldn’t benefit my from my goals.
“I was with the Black Stars during the time of Coach Avram Grant but I couldn’t get the enough playing time to fit into the team to follow the foot steps of Asamoah Gyan.
“I could have scored more goals for Black stars if I have had more playing time,” Assifuah revealed on Original Tv’s Sports Punch.
