Accra Hearts of Oak defender Musah Inusah has described the experience of training with the Black Stars as “overwhelming” and says Ghana will beat Uganda on Friday.

And the Hearts defender, who trained with the national team before their trip to Tamale says the experience was overwhelming.
“The welcoming was good, and it’s as if I had known all the players for long and been with the team before though it was my first time,” Inusah told Hearts of Oak’s official media outlet.
“I was really surprised when I misplaced a pass [in training], and they kept encouraging and motivating me.
“It made me feel comfortable and at ease, because they kept saying ‘go on, don’t worry, the right pass will come’.
“It’s a positive feeling to train with the national team because it’s not easy to get a call-up. The experience was very overwhelming and I want to experience it again. I have tasted it once, and I am going to work harder for another opportunity.”
He added: “I wish the Ghana Black Stars well and I hope they beat Uganda convincingly on Friday. I am confident the Stars will beat Uganda by many goals.”

” I thank the management and supporters of Hearts for their true support to the team and myself.
“I am grateful to the supporters and the media for what they have done for me. They lifted me to the national team, and I cannot thank them enough.”
