Black Meteors hat-trick hero Kwabena Owusu has expressed his desire to don the Black Stars jersey following his superlative performance in the 2019 AFCON U23 qualifier against Togo.
The Salmantino UDS forward became the toast of fans at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium after bagging a hat-trick in Ghana’s 5-1 win over neighbours Togo in the first leg of the 2019 AFCON U23 qualifier.
In an interview with reporters after the match, the 21-year-old hitman could not hide his desire of playing for senior national team.
“Oh yeah, it’s my dream to play for the Black Stars. It’s not only me but I think every member of this squad will say same if you ask him this question,” Owusu said.
“I’m happy with the goals I scored but the job is not done until we play the second leg.”
Owusu netted 8 goals in 16 games for Salmantino in the first round of the 2018/19 Spanish Segunda B Division.
He will hope to replicate the feat when the Black Meteors engage Togo in the second leg on Saturday, December 22 in Lome.
Winner of the tie will face Gabon in the next round of the qualifiers for the next year’s competition in Egypt.20009530
