Hardly will you see an outfield player from the Ghana Premier League in recent past, playing in a competitive or friendly game for the senior national team, the Black Stars, even though they are being invited by the coaches.
Samuel Sarfo is not the first player from the Ghanaian league to feature in a game for the Black Stars and will not be last either, but his story from a Police guard on duty to the Black Stars and becoming a member of the team is worth writing.
Last year, Sarfo was policing the senior national team players in Accra as they prepared to play in an AFCON qualifier and about ten months down the line, he came off the bench as a player to replace Jerry Akaminko at right back for the same team he was policing some months ago in an international friendly against the United States in Eastern Hartford, Connecticut on July 1st, 2017 as Ghana lost 2-1 to the.
Though a defender, Sarfo is currently Liberty Professionals’ top scorer in this season’s Ghana Premier League scoring 6 goals in 16 games for the Dansoman based club.
