Akaminko at the peak of his powers and on his way to a maiden World Cup in Brazil landed awkwardly and broke his ankle-ultimately ruling him out of the competition and draining his dreams.
He would go on to suffer in the next two years-battling with pain and losing lucrative offers in the process.
But this season has seen a resemblance of the old Akaminko who has been intimating strikers and playing week-in-week-out.
Kwesi Appiah is a huge admirer of the defender’s ability and has been in contact with the player since he was re-appointed as head coach of the Black Stars.
There is a huge likelihood that he will be in the team that will face Ethiopia and the friendly against the U.S.A.
