Ghana defender Lee Addy hopes his run of regular games for Dinamo Zagreb wins him back a place in the Black Stars. 

The 22-year-old has not been involved with the national team since his last call up in the 1-1 draw with China in an international friendly match played last year.

He was however part of the Black Stars team that finished finalists and quarter finalists at the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations and the World Cup respectively.

Addy’s career suffered a hit with a move to China where a lot was not heard of his exploits while with Dalian Aerbin.

He now appears to be on the up again with a loan return to topflight European football at Croatian giants Dinamo Zagreb.

The ex Berekum Chelsea defender has recovered from a difficult start to play in the last three games as the Blues gear towards an 8th successive Premier League crown.

Addy now hopes his regular run in Croatia will again catch the attention of Ghana coach Akwasi Appiah for future national assignments.

“Of course I hope so, I believe in my qualities although the competition is strong in Ghana,” he told Dinamo’s official website.

“I believe I will win a place in the Dinamo team and then in the national team.

“When I’m not in the team anyway I’m with them, rooting for my country and follow the games.

“The manager is the one who chooses and sometimes has to try other players so all I have to do is to work hard. And once again draw attention to myself.

“Of course it was difficult when I played in China and that is why I am so very happy and motivated as I came to Dinamo.”

Addy has played 27 times for the Black Stars but is still chasing his first goal at international level.
