Asante Kotoko captain Amos Frimpong says he and his teammates are ready to prove themselves against the Black Stars at the Baba Yara Stadium on Friday.
The Porcupines come up against the senior national team in a friendly tie in Kumasi following the cancelation of the Black Stars’ AFCON 2019 qualifier with the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone by FIFA.
The versatile defender told the club’s website that the game would be ‘difficult’ but believes the Porcupines will give a good account of themselves.
“It would be a difficult task, but I trust my colleagues to pull strings together to cause a surprise,” stresses Amos Frimpong.
“It is a privilege for us to play with our senior national team. We would not be pushovers; no. We are coming to prove ourselves and make a statement not just for us as Kotoko players, but also the Premier League and all local players.”
The must-watch clash will mark the debut of the newly-signed head coach, Charles Kwablan Akonnor, and Amos Frimpong insists his side will showcase a beautiful football learned under the new trainer.
“Our supporters should come in their numbers to witness good football and also urge us on to victory,” continues the skipper.
