The Enugu Rangers goalie who is expected in the team’s camp in the UAE today has noted his readiness to fight for a starting place at the Cup of Nations.
“I am very sad for my brother Adam Kwarasey, I was preparing to go to Nigeria and join my team for the pre-season when I had a call to come back to the Black Stars.”
“I am not just going there to be a standby goalkeeper, I am going there to fight for a place in the starting team.
“I know all the goalkeepers are good so I have to work hard to secure a starting place.”
