Huddersfield Town striker, Collin Quaner has revealed his readiness to kick-start his international career with the Black Stars.
The lanky attacker who is currently in the country on holiday, met with Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah last month to discuss the possibility of representing Ghana at international level.
‘I try not to really think about it, the pressure for me is more of excitement to have the chance [to play for Ghana],’ the 26-year-old told Joy FM.
‘I’m fully focused. I’ve always been someone who likes to work and is disciplined, so I will be prepared if it comes to the case.”
‘I’ve been following the Black Stars since I was young when they were playing at the World Cup and at big tournaments.”
‘Personally, I think the Black Stars always have one of the strongest teams on the continent of Africa and always have great players like former captain Stephen Appiah and Asamoah Gyan.”
‘They always play a good role, and it’s quite unfortunate that they were not able to qualify for this year’s World Cup.’
Quaner played for German lower division sides Fortuna Dusseldorf, Armenia Bielefeld, Ingolstadt, Hansa Rostock, VfR Aalen, and Union Berlin before heading for England in 2017.
Born to a Ghanaian father and a German mother in Dusseldorf, Germany, Quaner qualifies to represent the country of his father under FIFA eligibility rules.
He failed to register his name on the scoring sheet in 26 Premier League appearances – which involved 13 starts, as Huddersfield finished 16th to avoid relegation last term.
